Free Legal Consultation*
For new clients, a legal assistant or other staff member in our firm will intake your case information. If additional information is required to determine if we can assist you with your case, we may offer a free consultation by an attorney to gather more information. A free consultation typically does not include legal advice, is offered only in our sole and absolute discretion, and does not mean that you have retained our firm as legal counsel. Only a written document provided to you by our firm describing our representation and executed by a managing attorney at our firm will establish an agreement by our firm to provide you legal services.

Virginia Complaint to Impeach Will / Bill to Impeach Will

In the Commonwealth of Virginia, in order to challenge a will that has been offered to probate in a Virginia Court, an interested person, meaning an individual whom without the current will (Intestate or prior will) would otherwise be entitled to receive a portion of the estate, must file a Complaint (Bill) to Impeach the will. Generally, with some exceptions, an interested person only has one year from the date that the will was offered to probate (and recognized by the Court as being the proper jurisdiction) to challenge the will that was probated. It is important that an interested person who wishes to challenge a Virginia will which has been offered or may be offered to probate contact a Virginia will litigation attorney immediately to prevent and/or stay the distribution of assets under such will.

The wills lawyers at McClanahan Powers are experienced with Bills to Impeach a Will and have obtained six figure settlements while representing disinherited individuals due to undue influence and lack of testamentary capacity. Conversely, McClanahan Powers also represents estates in defending against will contests or Bills to Impeach a Will.

Virginia Breach of Fiduciary Duty and Petition to Remove

An executor, administrator, and/or trustee of an estate, as applicable, all owe fiduciary duties, including duties of loyalty and care, to the beneficiary or beneficiaries of an estate. If one of these types of individuals, or in some cases multiple individuals (i.e., co-trustees) breach a fiduciary duty, an interested person, as discussed above, may be able to petition the applicable Court to remove such person or persons from their role in the estate (i.e., petition to remove trustee).

The Virginia will lawyers and trust attorneys at McClanahan Powers are experienced with petitions to remove, as well as Trust Challenges. It is important to consult an experienced estate litigation attorney regarding a petition to remove to prevent a disloyal or negligent individual from assisting with the distribution and/or maintenance of the estate.
