When the distribution of wealth among family members and other beneficiaries is involved, relationships are often put to the test. Will and trust contests have become increasingly commonplace, particularly in high-net-worth estates and complex probate matters.
The process of resolving such disputes can add to the emotional toll caused by the loss of a loved one. In some cases, hiring an experienced attorney to mediate a dispute between the parties involved can successfully avoid probate litigation. Unfortunately, sometimes the distribution of wealth among beneficiaries can become so contentious that the only remaining option to resolve the dispute is to proceed with litigation.
