Estate planning helps eliminate some of the stress and worries that can arise after the death of a loved one. However, estates and trusts typically involve many different parties who can have conflicting opinions and interests. Although families try to avoid them at all costs, estate disputes happen often.
Estate disputes often involve contesting the contents of the will, such as disputes over inheritance and property. These disputes usually involve family members, but an estate can also receive claims against it if someone dies with significant debts.
