What kinds of problems can lead to litigation?
If you are facing any of the issues outlined below following the death of a loved one, contact us to arrange a consultation. Call 866-270-3513 or complete the contact us form on this page. We know you probably have questions and might feel overwhelmed. That's why we're here. Our mission is to help resolve probate and estate problems for families throughout South Jersey, efficiently and effectively.
- Claims of undue influence: Did someone - perhaps a caretaker or relative - unduly influence the decedent to make a will or execute a trust in his or her favor?
- Lack of capacity: Was the testator (the person who made the will or trust) not mentally competent? Did he or she not understand his or her decisions?
- Claims that correct accounting processes were not followed
- Claims that an executor or trustee is engaging in malfeasance or mismanagement
- Claims that the intent of the testator is unclear or the language of the will or trust is not precise
If you are having a problem not listed on this page, we want to hear from you. We will listen and offer our thoughts on the best way to proceed. In many cases involving will contests or trust disputes, we pursue mediation. Sometimes, a notification of intent to contest results in closure of the matter.
But some will contests and trust disputes do end up being argued in court. While we seek the most efficient and cost-effective methods to resolve such matters, Price and Price stands fully prepared to file a lawsuit and argue before a judge. But we do so only after sitting down and discussing the merits with our clients. Our goal is to take the course of action that best meets the client's goals.
