Frequently Asked Questions About Estate Litigation

For many of our clients, this is the first time they have encountered these issues, and we want to be the ones who provide them with the answers they need. As we represent you, we can answer important questions such as:

What often leads to estate litigation?

Any number of disputes can turn into estate litigation. Common issues, including the validity of a will, how estate documents are interpreted, lack of clarity from the decedent’s instructions, and the actions of the executor, can result in litigation.

How can estate litigation be prevented?

There are several preventative measures someone can take to avoid litigation, including thorough estate planning, clear communication, and the creation of comprehensive, unambiguous legal documents. Regularly updating an estate plan to reflect life changes can also be an important step to take.

How long and complicated can estate litigation get?

Depending on the details surrounding the litigation, it can take months or longer to resolve an estate litigation matter. Our goal as your legal representation is to minimize the time it takes to settle these matters while still defending your best interests.

What is the role of an estate litigation attorney?

As your estate litigation attorney, our attorneys can address any issue involving an estate’s administration, including contesting the validity of wills, addressing concerns about an executor’s actions, and resolving disagreements among beneficiaries. We develop personalized strategies for these issues based on the unique needs of our clients.

What rights do beneficiaries have in estate litigation?

As a beneficiary of an estate, you have the right to know about any administration matters involving the estate. You also have the right to a fair and reasonably timed distribution of your inheritance. If there is not a will present, the New Jersey probate process will oversee the distribution of assets. If you suspect there is a violation of your rights, you can take legal action to defend them.

Can estate litigation affect trusts as well as wills?

While estate litigation is commonly associated with wills, trusts can also apply to the litigation. A dispute may come from the interpretation of a trust document, any actions a trustee takes, or improperly distributing assets.
