We live in a litigious society, and challenges to wills and trusts happen quite frequently. Disputes arise for a number of reasons, including:
- An outside party trying to grab a piece of the family estate
- Family members disputing the validity of the will or trust on the grounds that the decedent was unduly influenced or not of sound mind
- Arguments over who should have been named as executor or trustee
- Questions over whether the executor or trustee properly carried out the mandates of the will or trust
- Claims that the executor or trustee improperly distributed estate or trust assets to himself or herself
- And many more
Unfortunately, these disputes may become ugly very quickly, cause resentment between family members that can last a lifetime, and result in devastating financial consequences for all parties involved.
