The legacy left in a deceased's will after his or her passing may give rise to conflict among beneficiaries. Parties who disagree with the terms of a trust, the actions of an estate administrator or the provisions within a will may choose to take legal action.
Common Estate Litigation Claims
Estate litigation usually involves one of four types of claims:
- Trust litigation, specifically disputes arising from trusts created as part of a will or testamentary document
- Contesting the disposition of the estate's assets pursuant to the Wills Variation Act by spouse or child of the testator
- Contesting the validity of a will such as challenging the capacity of a testator
- Estate administration matters such as disputing the executor's claims in the passing of the estate's accounts
