Can the probate process be contested?

Yes. An heir to the estate may contest the probate process if they believe they are entitled to a more of the property and assets, or if a new will was recently executed. It is the responsibility of the executor or the court-appointed administrator to defend the estate in probate court. The attorney supporting the executor can assist in the securing the estate as well.
