Know the reasons for trust litigation

One way to provide specific assets for certain individuals or entities is to transfer them through a trust. This usually is an efficient way to accomplish this goal, but there are some situations that might question the validity of a trust. We understand that these matters shouldn't be taken lightly.

When you think that a trust's terms have been altered or that the trust was established contrary to the applicable laws, you might opt to pursue legal action to challenge the trust's terms or management. One issue that frequently comes up in these cases is whether the testator was legally able to establish the trust.

In order to enter into any legal arrangement, including establishing a trust, the person must be mentally capable of understanding what they're doing. It is wholly possible to contest a trust if there is reason to believe that it was established when the person who created it wasn't able to do this.

Trust litigation may also be necessary to initiate when the decedent relayed a message of support to a non-profit or similar entity. They may have said that they were going to provide a gift to the entity after they passed away. When this is the case, there is a chance that the entity might pursue litigation to determine whether they get that posthumous gift.

We know how challenging it can be to face these situations. You may be squaring off against blood relatives or close friends or business associates. We are here to help you to determine what options you have to resolve the matter concerning the trust.
