Recently the General Assembly made significant changes to the statutes governing decedents' estates. These amendments included an effort to capture the range of contested estate issues into a general, defined category and to set rules to govern them. The new legislation designates these matters as \"estate proceedings\" and goes on to specify the procedures that apply to their adjudication--from filing to litigation to hearing to appeal. This bulletin discusses the new procedural framework for contested estate proceedings.
