Estate Litigation

Why Does Estate Litigation Happen?There can be many reasons that underlie disputes arising from estate-related matters. Often, litigation occurs because a substantial sum of money or other valuable assets are at stake.

A no-contest clause is an all-or-nothing measure. A beneficiary who is unhappy with what he or she stands to inherit will receive nothing if he/she tries to contest the will.

Some reasons for estate litigation include:

● Multiple wills have been presented
● A will has been contested because of suspected influence or fraud
● Questions have arisen about the mental competency of a testator
● There are valid claims against an estate

In the aftermath of a death, disputes that arise over wills or other estate-related matters can be confusing and upsetting. If they cannot be satisfactorily resolved through negotiation or other means, questions about wills, trusts and estate issues may lead to litigation.
