Troubleshooting And Resolving Probate And Trust Disputes
Disputes commonly arise during the probate or trust administration process. Arguments develop over large assets or family businesses, especially when there is family infighting. Beneficiaries fight with each other or with the trustee over the distribution of trust assets. These conflicts can be complex and tension-filled.
