By law, wills are supposed to go through probate, and that probate is supervised by the Probate Court. However, executors and administrators do not always follow the legal steps in probating a will. When this situation occurs, the beneficiaries are typically the ones who suffer, as their inheritances are not distributed the way the decedent wished. Some of the common scenarios associated with an executor or administrator who does not properly probate a will include:
- Distributing property outside of probate
- Starting a probate, but failing to complete it
- Coercing the decedent into writing a will that favored him or her
