When Disputes Arise, Estate And Probate Litigation May Help
Nearly everyone hopes for a smooth estate settlement, but it doesn’t always happen. Disputes among heirs and allegations of an executor’s incompetence may surface during the probate process. The bickering can be loud and the finger-pointing non-stop. This is when an experienced estate and probate litigator should step in.
In many instances, contested estates can be resolved with limited expense and without protracted litigation or a costly court trial.

Contesting Wills, Poor Behavior Of Executors
Occasionally, disagreements and lawsuits arise during the probate process. Typically, someone may be unhappy about the property that he or she has received. And some may have concerns that a trustee — the person who manages the property held in the trust — as well as the executor or personal representative is incorrectly distributing the property or has simply neglected their fiduciary duties.
Such challenges may surface when the executor is disorganized, incompetent and careless, or even if the executor puts personal interests first. In some cases, executors misappropriate assets from the estate. In other situations, beneficiaries may challenge the will, citing forgery, undue influence and lack of capacity. Such situations are highly emotional affairs, so retaining a skilled estate planning attorney is a necessity.
