SERVICES WE OFFER TO CLIENTS INVOLVED IN WILLS TRUSTS AND ESTATES DISPUTES
Wills, Trusts and Estate Disputes
When a person dies, their assets and belongings must be distributed according to their wishes as outlined in their will or trust. However, disputes over wills, trusts, and estates are common, and can often lead to lengthy and costly legal battles.
When a person passes away, their will is often the first document that is examined. The will outlines how the person’s assets should be distributed after their death.
In some cases, the will may be contested by an individual or group who believes it does not accurately reflect the wishes of the deceased. This could be due to a lack of mental capacity, fraud, or coercion.
In some cases, an individual may challenge the validity of the will itself, claiming it was not properly signed or witnessed.
Trusts can be similar to wills in that they can outline how assets should be distributed after death. However, trusts are more complex, and often involve a third party such as a trustee to manage and distribute the trust assets according to the deceased’s wishes.
Disputes involving trusts may arise due to doubt over the legal existence of a trust, a misunderstanding of the terms of the trust, or if the trustee is accused of mismanaging the trust.
Estates are the total value of a person’s assets, and Estate Disputes can arise when the will does not adequately provide for all of the deceased’s assets. This can be especially problematic if there are significant debts that must be paid from the estate, or if there are disputes between heirs.
It’s important for individuals to be aware of their rights, responsibilities and the repercussions of actions relating to wills, trusts and estates.
When it comes to disputed wills, trusts, and estates, it is important to have the right legal representation on your side.
