The Trust Contest Process in California
A trust contest or dispute is when an heir or beneficiary seeks to formally change the terms of an inheritance, bequest, or gift that is stated in their loved one’s trust after that person has passed away. Winning a contest generally requires an individual to prove there was undue influence by another who benefitted from that influence or that the person who drafted the trust lacked mental capacity or was not in their right mind at the time they signed their trust.
In addition, Yonano Law Offices, P.C. can help those facing the following situations:
- Legal actions to remove the trustee from his or her position of power
- Questions regarding the actions of the trustee
- Complications regarding fiduciary duty
- Questions regarding the validity of the trust
- Questions regarding actions from the trustee that have negatively affected beneficiaries
Of course, every case is different, and you may be facing unique complications. We can help examine the unique facts of your case and weigh the financial and emotional impacts of contesting the trust. Should you decide to pursue the contest, we can then efficiently file a petition in the county where the trust administration is taking place and investigate all information and witnesses pertinent to the contest. With the assistance of our attorney, you could see a favorable settlement or resolution to your situation. If you are questioning any portion of a trust, or if you are interested in filing a lawsuit or removing an individual from his or her trustee duties, work with Yonano Law Offices, P.C. today.
