Why Do I Have to Go through the Process of Trust Litigation?

There are a variety of different circumstances that can lead to trust litigation. Typically, litigation is required when there is a dispute over how the trust should be interpreted, which can lead to a lengthy litigation process.

Some people may dispute whether the trust was established by someone of "sound mind.” Others may believe that the estate planning documents are unclear and dispute how the provisions should be carried out. In these scenarios, having an experienced attorney who can carefully examine the estate plan can go a long way toward clarifying these issues.

Pre-existing issues within the family can make it even more difficult to discuss the provisions of the estate plan calmly and reach a reasonable compromise. If the provisions ever favor one beneficiary over another, trust litigation is often the next step in the process. Our Fullerton trust litigation attorneys will uncover evidence in your favor and build a strong case on your behalf to ensure that the trust is administered properly.
