When can trust and estate litigation occur?
Though most matters in probate court go unchallenged, certain situations can arise which necessitate probate, trust, or guardianship litigation. Some common such scenarios include, but are not limited to, the following:
-A will is challenged due to a question of the competence of the testator
-There is a dispute over the way a will/trust is worded or structured
-The installation of a guardianship is being contested
-A trustee is attempting to modify or terminate a trust
-A beneficiary is suing a fiduciary for a breach of their duty in administering the probate or trust
