Frequently Asked Questions About Trust Litigation

What Exactly is Trust Litigation?

Trust litigation is a legal process that involves resolving disputes or conflicts related to trusts. It typically occurs when beneficiaries, trustees, or other interested parties disagree on matters such as trust validity, administration, interpretation, or distribution of assets.

Common Causes of Trust Disputes in Orange County

Some common reasons for trust disputes include disagreements over the interpretation of trust terms, allegations of undue influence or fraud in the creation of the trust, disputes between beneficiaries and trustees regarding asset distribution, concerns about the competency of the trust creator, and conflicts arising from changes in family dynamics or relationships.

Duration of Trust Litigation in California Courts

The duration of trust litigation can vary depending on the complexity of the case, the willingness of the parties to negotiate or reach a settlement, and the court's schedule.
