Trust Litigation in Troy
Fighting for Fairness in Asset Distribution in Oakland County, & Surrounding Areas
When you’re faced with the troubling prospect of protecting your rights or facing family in court, you need a tough, talented litigator on your side. For those who are involved in trust litigation as a beneficiary, trustee, or personal representative of a decedent’s estate in Michigan, the attorneys at BRMM know how to advise you about your rights, responsibilities, and legal options.
Potential Problems With Trusts
To avoid probate at death, minimize exposure to estate taxes, and provide care for a vulnerable dependent, some people form trusts to put their personal or business assets into a separate fund. However, some problems can arise in the funding and administration of trusts, both before and after the death of the settlor. That is when you need smart, sound advice from an experienced probate lawyer.
Some problems that might require probate court:
- Issues of competence, undue influence or duress at the time the settlor created the trust or during the administration of a living trust
- Charges of waste or improper asset administration against the trustee
- Disputes between a trust’s income beneficiaries and the asset beneficiaries
- Problems resulting from the failure to properly or completely transfer title to assets into trust during the life of the settlor
- Allegations of fraud, misappropriation or self-dealing against the trustee
