A person in Florida who is not included in the will of a close relative might decide to contest the will. Being cut out of a will is not unusual; it may happen because a new spouse inherits all the assets or for some other reason, but the first step is often to discuss the situation with an attorney.
Contesting a will is a grueling and emotional process. People should be prepared for the fact that there could be lies told about them, and there might be a counter lawsuit. There is likely to be a deposition. This involves the lawyer for the other side asking questions, and the deposition is made into a transcript. Personal and upsetting questions might be asked or insinuations made. For example, a person might be portrayed as only after money and not caring about the relative. The person could be required to testify in court.
