It’s also important to determine if the estate can avoid probate. These issues need to be resolved expeditiously by a probate lawyer who has experience in probate litigation. Based in DeLand, we also serve clients throughout Volusia County, including DeBary, Deltona and Orange City, FL.
In cases where the decedent didn’t leave a will, if the will is contested or additional heirs make a claim, probate litigation may be necessary to affect a desired outcome.

When the loss of both parents leaves behind a minor child or children in Volusia County, it is important to have a compassionate and experienced probate attorney in DeLand to represent the interests of the minors. This not only means ensuring their rightful claims to the estate, but also includes handling guardianship matters to bring stability back into their lives as soon as possible. Unfortunately, many parents pass away intestate (without a will) and guardianship will need to be resolved in family court. An experienced probate lawyer working on behalf of the minor children will help ensure the parents wishes are carried out.
We also represent the interests of incapacitated adults to ensure they reserve the care they need upon the death of a caregiver as well as any claims they may have to the estate. The guardianship of incapacitated adults may be specified in a will. However, if there is no will or if the will is contested, probate litigation may be necessary.
