It is difficult to make everyone happy when making a plan for the future. When drafting an estate plan, it is likely that some family members and beneficiaries will not agree with your decisions. However, at the end of the day, the contents of your will and trusts are up to you. But this will not stop some family members from getting into a dispute following your death and the execution of your will or trusts.
Probation litigation is a possible outcome for individuals in California and elsewhere. While it is a challenging process to be involved in, it is often necessary to sort out the disputes arising around a loved one’s will or trust.
