Trust Litigation

When an individual set up a Trust, it is believed that everything will go smoothly, their property and assets are protected, and the individual appointed as the Trustee will properly perform their duties. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In addition, it may later discovered that undue influence of another played a role in how the Trust was set up, or who is named as the beneficiary of the trust.

Potential Trust Litigation issues may include, but are not limited to:

  • Undue influence: When a person successfully persuades a person to make decisions regarding the development of a trust, which either directly benefits the person who provides the undue influence, or adversely affects others as a result of the undue influence.

  • Lack of mental capacity: when an individual who has set up a trust has their mental capacity disputed relating to the trust and estate decisions outlined the trust.

  • Trustee Malfeasance: When an appointed trustee fails to adequately adhere to their prescribed duties, according the law. The trustee may be personally held liable for trustee malfeasance, and in some cases, may even be held criminally liable.

  • Trust fund distribution disputes: typically exist between family members in which one or more family member is either left out of a trust, or they believe they did not receive a fair share of trust assets.

  • Trust Entitlement Petitions: When an individual or individuals believe they have a solid foundation to dispute the validity of a trust, which the believe they have a legal right to be included.

  • Property Recovery: Estate, trust or probate legal actions are sometimes necessary to recover property on behalf of a trust taken in violation of the terms of the trust. Typically, legal action is taken in this manner due to trustee malfeasance.

  • Breach of Trust Duties: When an appointed trustee fails to adequately adhere to their prescribed duties, according the law, or does not act in the best interest of the beneficiary, the Trustee may be legally removed as the Trustee, held personably liable for trustee malfeasance, and in some cases, may even be held criminally liable.
