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. There may be individuals who wish to contest whether or not the trust was established by someone of "sound mind" when it was created. Or there may be individuals who believe that the estate planning documents are unclear and wish to contest how the provisions should be carried out. In these scenarios, having an experienced estate planning attorney who can carefully examine the estate plan can go a long way toward clarifying many of these issues.
These issues can become even more complicated if there are pre-existing issues within the family that make it difficult to discuss the provisions of the estate plan in a calm and reasonable manner. If the provisions ever favor one beneficiary over another, trust litigation is often the next step in the process. That's why having an intelligent and experienced estate planning and litigation attorney working on your behalf can make all the difference in the world. Having a qualified attorney can help ensure that the needs of you and your family are taken care of when decisions begin to be made about how to divide and distribute the estate.
Experience can never be underestimated.
