Is probate sometimes necessary?

There is a lot of discussion during estate planning on probate avoidance.  However, in some situations, probate may be appropriate.  Probate is designed to give all interested parties an opportunity to challenge a will, particularly if anyone is concerned the deceased was mentally incompetent or under duress when the will was executed.  Attorney Neil Jensen shares his advice on when probate may be appropriate on KDUZ 1260 AM’s show “Legal Update.”
