When a will or trust lists multiple beneficiaries and Executors or Trustees to oversee the distribution of property and assets, disagreement on how the estate is being divided can arise. This escalation is made all the more complicated if the will is out of date or there is no will at all. These disagreements can result in the need for legal professionals to step in and help resolve the matter through litigation.
Some of the most common reasons for an estate to enter the litigation process include:
- Disputes over the validity of the purported will
- Errors in the will
- Omissions in the will
- Questions of interpretation of the will
- Changes in estate property
- Questions on how a Power of Attorney has used money or assets of the decedent
- Treatment of the decedent’s property as separate property or community property
- Value of the assets of the estate
- Ownership over a specific asset of the decedent
- Disputes over succession of a business
- Breach of duty by an Executor or Administrator
