Common Issues Leading to Estate Litigation

Estate-related disputes can occur for a variety of reasons, but some of the most common are as follows:

  • Lack of Estate Planning: Without a clear estate plan in place, disputes can arise among heirs and beneficiaries, leading to lengthy and costly litigation.
  • Undue Influence: Instances of undue influence can occur when someone exerts pressure on the testator to change their will or estate plan against their wishes, often resulting in disputes among family members.
  • Capacity Issues: Challenges to a will or estate plan may arise if there are concerns about the testator’s mental capacity at the time of execution. Such disputes require careful evaluation and legal intervention.
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty: Executors, trustees, and other fiduciaries are obligated to act in the best interests of the estate and its beneficiaries. Breaches of this duty can lead to disputes and legal action.

The process of disputing an estate-related issue can be a contentious and lengthy one, which is why it’s paramount to have a competent attorney in your corner throughout it. That said, a brief overview of the process is as follows:
