The word probate sounds complicated and overwhelming, and sometimes it can be. Probate is the court-supervised process of authenticating your loved one’s last will and testament.

Will Contests

When a will fails to express the true intentions of your loved one, Jimmy Carter fights to challenge its validity and ensure the correct legacy is honored.

  • Diminished mental capacity
  • Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
  • Undue influence or under duress
  • Fraud or procedural mistake

Alzheimer’s and dementia can impact decision making, and often complicates the validity of a will or trust. Today 1.4% of Americans aged 85 are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and that number is projected to rise 5% in 2030, bringing in a greater number of will contest cases due to increasing incidents of Alzheimer’s disease.
