Probate and Trust Disputes

Conflicts frequently occur over probate assets and trust assets. When disagreements between the parties arise, litigation is one avenue that beneficiaries turn to for resolution. The process typically involves the filing of petitions with the court handling the matter. Such petitions can cover a wide array of actions, such as requesting an accounting of assets, removal of trustees, and other measures designed to place pressure on the process. 

The journey through estate settlement can be a daunting one. Each and every party involved in the process has a role, and other parties find creative ways to setup roadblocks along the way.
