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

Experience Counts in Court

Our team has decades of litigation experience and can help clients to resolve any problem relating to trusts – whether it is about the formation of the trust or management of its assets. The litigators at BRMM honed their skills in courtrooms throughout the state and their experience with Michigan trust litigation is unmatched.

It may be necessary to litigate in cases of:

  • Re-formation of a trust to fit new unanticipated realities
  • Removal or replacement of a trustee
  • Detailed accounting of the trustee’s management of trust assets to track and quantify improper transactions
  • Contest or defend ownership of assets in a dispute between trustees and a decedent’s estate representatives
