In this article, our Illinois probate litigation attorneys explain tortious interference of an expectancy, which is a claim against a third party for committing an illegal act that deprives plaintiffs of an expected inheritance. This differs from a will contest, because tortious interference with an expectancy actually seeks payment of damages from the third party, rather than a reapportionment of the estate.
Probate claims are filed by individuals or entities that believe they are owed money by the probate estate, usually because of a debt from the deceased individual. We explain the deadline to file a probate claim, how to file a probate claim, and how disputed probate claims are resolved through probate litigation.
