The division of a person’s property, assets, and finances after their death is an issue that is more complex than many realize. The topics of inheritance, rights, and distribution generally grow more complicated based on the amount of property that the deceased owned. When families dispute the many topics surrounding wills and other probate law, such as distribution of assets, legal intervention is sometimes necessary.

Even when the will of a deceased is fully honored, there are many issues that can arise in distributing an estate, such as appointment of an administrator and fully disclosing assets for distribution.  Decisions regarding certain, factors may impact large sums or the futures of several individuals, so  each dispute should not be taken lightly. Each step of the process of managing the estate can have an impact that should not be underestimated.

Reasons for pursuing probate litigation include:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Disputes over guardianships and conservatorships
  • Disputing an appointed personal representative, generally a bank or trust appointed to administer the estates
  • Distribution of tax burdens
  • Failure to make distributions in a timely manner
  • Failure to provide an inventory of the property
  • Forgery claims
  • Misuse of power of attorney
  • Undisclosed information regarding creditors
  • Undue influence over the distribution

Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap – let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in primers, spelling books, and in almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice.
– Abraham Lincoln
