Planning for your financial future is extremely important. While it is important to plan for your long-term financial needs, it is also important to make sure you have a plan for after you pass on. While a trust can be used to organize your finances and provide directions, there are situations in which something goes wrong with the trust and execution. There are several situations in which it would be a good idea to hire a trust litigation attorney to help you solve any trust problems that you can have.
Question Validity of Trust
One situation in which you should hire a trust litigation attorney is if you have a question about the validity of a trust. If you believe that the trust documents were signed while the signer was under influence, coercion, or simply did not have the lack of capacity to make a financial decision, you can call the entire validity of the trust into question. In these situations, your trust litigation attorney could put the entire trust on hold until the situation is figured out.
Poor Accounting of Trusts
After a trust needs to be executed, a trust administrator is responsible for accounting for all assets and liabilities. The administrator is then responsible for following certain instructions in the trust and then providing the remaining assets to the beneficiaries. If you feel that the administrator did not account for assets and liabilities correctly, you should have a trust litigation attorney hired to force the administrator to provide further detail and support for the accounting.
You should also hire a trust litigation attorney if you feel that there was a misappropriation of funds. In these situations, an attorney will be able to provide you with assistance to ensure that all funds are returned to the proper location.
