Suits to Establish a Will

A suit to establish a will is a legal proceeding filed by a party, in which the court is asked to determine what document(s) constitute(s) a deceased person’s will.  Suits to establish a will are filed when some uncertainty exists as to whether a deceased person had a will, or if they did, what document is the will.  A suit to establish a will is appropriate when, for instance, a person’s will has been lost.  The law of Virginia gives circuit courts the power to conduct a hearing on this question.  The court has the power to order people to appear in court and to produce whatever papers might constitute the decedent’s will.
