Estate litigation arises when a conflict about any aspect of an estate occurs and the courts must step in to resolve the conflict. There are several conflicts that can arise within an estate that would require litigation, such as:
- Contesting the validity of a Last Will and Testament
- Contesting whether a Trustee is performing their duties
- Objecting to the manner in which a personal representative has dispersed assets of the estate
These are just a few examples of the many issues that can arise in an estate and all would require an attorney with ample knowledge of the estate planning process and probate.
