Petition for Year's Support: What is it? When is it used? Why would you use it?

A petition for Year's Support is a proceeding in probate court regarding a decedent's estate. It is sometimes used instead of one of the other common procedures to administer an estate or probate a Will, but it is not mutually exclusive of those other proceedings. Some attorneys over use Year's Support petitions, while other attorneys do not consider them frequently enough.
