How do I contest my father's will when it was just put in probate 12/4/12 and it is a fraud?

Asked over 1 year ago - Gainesville, FL

My younger sister just entered into the courts and she stated that he left me a 1.00. There is no clause for contesting and the signatures are a fraud. The will was dated for 2005 and he was living with me then, also she had a sworn complaint brought against her for with drawing large sums of money from his accounts.

    Answered . You need to hire a skilled probate attorney that practices in the county where the probate is being administered. I see you are from Gainesville. If that is where the probate is, Sam Boone is a great probate attorney. His website is http://boonelaw.com/. Best of luck to you.
