When overseeing a loved one’s estate after their passing, disputes can arise regarding estate management. Even in the best of situations, with a comprehensive estate plan in place and a seemingly clear-cut will as the starting point, there still may be legal issues to navigate.
Do I Need an Estate Litigation Lawyer?
The laws regarding estate litigation vary by state and so, whether you need an estate lawyer will depend on your unique circumstances. It’s often beneficial to connect with an estate litigation lawyer to get a clear understanding of the potential legal implications surrounding your case. For example, beneficiaries and loved ones may raise concerns or pursue litigation regarding the way a person administers the estate, how long it’s taking to distribute assets, or potential unfair treatment or administration of assets.
There may also be concerns about a potential breach of trust in the way the fiduciary managed the estate. This may indicate that someone involved in the estate process has a certain level of suspicion regarding a trustee’s intentions or their actions when it comes to the execution of the will. As with all legal matters involving family, there may also be familial disputes between children whose parents died without a will to guide the distribution of their assets.
These emotionally charged circumstances are often complex and the level of challenge is heightened when you consider the grief each person is also navigating as well. In many cases, litigation is the most effective way to address these issues. If that’s the case you’ll want to have a dedicated, knowledgeable legal team by your side as you address any disputes.
