Trust litigation is a complex task that must be taken seriously

A person who is creating an estate plan might put some of their assets in trusts. These are meant to easily distribute the assets when the person passes away. Normally, this can happen without any issue but there are times when the trusts might come under fire.

Trust litigation is a serious matter that can't be taken lightly. You have to be prepared to show the court why your assertions are valid. We understand that you might have trouble with this since you aren't familiar with this area of the law. We are here to help you with this matter so that you can move your case forward.

One of the primary reasons for trust litigation is the same as one that is common for will contests. This is the belief that the person changed the trust under duress or false pretenses. There are times when someone who is close to the person, whether they are a family member or other caregiver, will persuade them to change the document. It is often hard to prove that this happened.

In some instances, people will make claims about the person's mental health at the time that the document was changed. They might claim that he or she didn't understand the magnitude of the change that was being made. Even this might be a challenge to prove.

We realize that you only want what you should have been entitled to. After all, this is the last chance that you have to get something to remember your loved one by. We can help you build your case and help you get it started.
