My Husband Was Diagnosed With Mesothelioma in Louisiana in December 2012 and Recently Passed Away….

Shortly after his funeral, I found a signed will made before our marriage and lawsuit. Does this will affect my rights?

Our deepest condolences. Since the will was made prior to your marriage, and the mesothelioma lawsuit was filed afterward, you may be entitled to a legal share from his probate estate.

However, an attorney would want to review the executed retainer agreement to determine the portion of your husband’s estate that you are entitled to claim under state law.

We recommend that you contact a probate attorney for more information to assert a claim.
