How do you handle disputes or conflicts that may arise during probate proceedings?

Probate proceedings in India can get complex if disputes arise regarding the validity of the will or its contents. Any interested party can file objections with the court contesting the will’s authenticity, the testator’s mental capacity, or undue influence. The court will then hear arguments from both sides. If the objections are substantial, the court may order a trial to determine the will’s validity. This might involve witness testimonies and expert opinions. Often, parties involved try to reach an amicable settlement outside of court. This can save time and money. If no settlement is reached, the court will issue a final judgment on the will’s validity. This judgment will be binding on all parties involved.
