Sometimes a person dies with a will but there are, shall we say, issues. Perhaps you believe the person was unduly influenced by someone to create a new will, or that they were not competent at the time the will was signed. The will may be vague or uncertain about certain critical issues that control distribution to the beneficiaries. Was a close family member left out in favor of a stranger? All of these things should be brought to the attention of experienced legal counsel to help determine if a challenge to the will is appropriate. The challenge could take different forms, depending on the issue. Time and cost would of course vary as well.
