Grounds for challenging a probated will

Generally speaking, it is difficult to successfully challenge a will in New Jersey. Around 99 percent of wills nationwide are upheld in their entirety by probate courts. That said, anyone who may have an interest in the estate can bring a challenge. There are several valid grounds to challenge a will.

The impact of increasing probate fees

New Jersey residents who bemoan their tax burdens may wish to spare a thought for those who live in nearby Connecticut. The state has seen thousands of residents pack up and leave in recent years as taxes have risen to bridge yawning budget gaps, and changes to the state's probate fees introduced on July 1 have made Connecticut the costliest state in the nation to die in.
