Need help with Trusts, Estates or Estate Planning?
A couple of things you can do to avoid estate disputes is to make sure that there’s open communication between whoever’s managing the estate, such as the trustee or the executor, and the beneficiaries. It’s important to freely communicate to avoid any concerns or belief that things are being hidden from the beneficiaries. If you can’t get the answers you want, I recommend highly that you get it in writing to create a paper trail. And if you still can’t come to resolution, it’s time to talk to your attorney.
