Trust Disputes Vary in Complexity
Trust disputes arise over a similar range of issues as estate disputes. However, because a trustee can exercise more authority over assets, depending on how the trust is set up, there can be a greater opportunity for legal involvement. For the same reason, there is more room for fraud. There are also occasions where the trustee is thought to have an unsound mind due to illness or injury (i.e. dementia). Additionally, a trust can be disputed when there is believed to have been undue influence wielded over the creator of the trust. For example, some may speculate that the benefactor was bribed or that he or she was forced to draft the trust while incoherent (i.e. on mind-altering medication or sick with an illness such as Alzheimer's Disease).
The Right Attorney Restores Peace Effectively
Money and family dynamics all too often lead to legal disputes. When such disagreements arise, it is best to contact a trusted attorney. Depending on the circumstances, I highly recommend early involvement of a neutral mediator or arbitrator. It is often easier to solve a dispute early on before opinions have settled and hardened.
