The Importance of Probate Litigation

  • This info-graphic titled ‘The Importance of Probate Litigation’ provides us an overview of process of probate litigation. Generally speaking, probate is the process of handling someone’s possessions, money and concluding wishes after they die. It is the authorized proof of a will issued to an executor or an authorized person to execute the will. This adds up on a legal character to a Will. According the Indian Succession Act, 1925 a probate is a copy of will certificated under the seal of a court of competent jurisdiction with grant of administration of the property of testator.

    Probates are usually issued to the fiduciaries of a will in order to authorize them with an approval seal from the court. In case there are no fiduciary of a will, a simple letter of disposal is issued by the court instead of a probate. Once a probate is theoretically implemented, the original copy is retained by the court, which renders the executor with a certificate proving that it is genuine along with a copy of the will.
