What are the common issues in estate litigation?

Estate litigation can happen for a broad range of reasons. Some of the most common issues our probate lawyers have helped families address include:

  • The person died without a will (intestate)
  • The validity of a will or trust document is disputed on the basis of incapacity, undue influence, forgery, defective execution, etc.
  • The language used in the will or trust documents is ambiguous and needs to be clarified
  • An executor or trustee is accused of violating his or her fiduciary responsibilities
  • Spousal rights proceedings to establish community property rights and analyze prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Kinship proceedings to establish the inheritance rights of relatives
  • Claims proceedings to establish claims on estate assets, such as by business partners, investors or creditors

Estate litigation is a complex and difficult process legally, financially, and emotionally. The parties involved are not only worried about the outcome of the proceedings, but also their relationships with the other people involved - not to mention the risk that the cost of litigation could deplete the assets of the estate itself. This is a defining moment for your family, and you need strong legal counsel. You need a Mesa probate attorney from Brown & Jensen.
