It is difficult enough to deal with the loss of a loved one without having to fight a legal battle as well. If you are involved in a court case over a will or trust, you need to contact an experienced trust litigation attorney today. If a case has not started but you think there might be a disagreement or trouble, you should have a consultation now. If your parents don’t have a will or trust yet, you need assistance with that to avoid trust or probate litigation in the future.
Probate is the legal process of dealing with the assets: money, possessions, property owned by a person when they pass. The person’s assets must be inventoried and decisions must be made on to whom they should go. Debts owed to the person also need to be assessed and collected. This has to be done within a very short time period. The debts owed to others and tax obligations must to be addressed too. If there is a will, that must be followed assuming it is a valid will. If you have been cut out of the will or there are other issues, you need to consult with an attorney who specializes in this area. If there isn’t a will at all, it is more likely that complications and hassles will appear and you’ll require assistance.
Trusts are legal documents that show where assets go and can also handle a person’s property while they are living and afterwards. There are often legal actions if a family member feels that trust is mishandling assets or disinheriting them. This is a complex area and you will need guidance from a litigation attorney.
Probate and trusts have very technical legal requirements and are not something you should try to handle on your own. Please protect your family and call our Brea probate litigation attorneys at Fridley Law Firm today.
