What Is Estate Litigation?

When someone passes away, their estate must go through the probate process. During this process, the courts will determine if the will is valid, an executor or administrator will be appointed to settle the deceased individual’s finances, including their debts, and they will distribute the estate according to the wishes outlined in the will. In cases where there is no will, the probate courts will have the estate administrator divide and distribute the deceased person’s assets to their living relatives based on New York’s Laws of intestacy.

There are many situations in which you may find yourself in need of an estate litigator, including:

  • Contested wills and trusts
  • Accounting issues and fiduciary litigation
  • Contested powers of attorney
  • Beneficiary and spousal rights issues
  • Kinship claims
  • Guardianship and elder abuse issues
  • Trustee fraud

Frequently, issues arise when someone does not receive assets that they believe should go to them, or there are issues regarding the mishandling of an estate. Additionally, some situations occur before the death of a loved one that require estate litigation, including elder abuse and fraud.
