When disputes arise among beneficiaries

| Nov 18, 2017 | Uncategorized

All sorts of complications may arise when it comes to estate matters, but those involving disagreements with beneficiaries can be particularly complex. Whether you are setting up a trust, have been named an executor, or are a beneficiary of your loved one’s estate, it is vital to handle any disputes appropriately. In Wakefield, and other cities across the state of Massachusets, these disputes have created all sorts of problems for entire families. Our law firm knows that in some instances, disputes between beneficiaries and executors have even torn families apart.

Sometimes, executors are falsely accused of failing to distribute the assets of an estate appropriately. If you are in this position, you may be facing an incredible amount of stress and legal challenges as a result of these allegations, in which case it is pivotal to protect your rights. Or, perhaps you are a beneficiary who believes that the executor has failed to fulfill their fiduciary duties and divvy up assets according to the decedent’s wishes. Moreover, you may be trying to figure out how to divide your assets among beneficiaries with your estate plan. Sometimes, it is not possible to please everyone, but you may want to consider the ins and outs of the situation before making any decisions.

When it comes to estates, family disagreements, and beneficiary disputes, attempting to resolve the problems amicably and minimize friction is fundamental. If you head over to our probate administration section, more material that is intertwined with beneficiary disputes can be accessed.
