Home » Estate Litigation » New Jersey estate litigation: Should I contest a trust?

Trust documents are usually pretty iron clad. That being said, those who disagree with the terms of a trust may question the trust document by contesting it in a New Jersey court. If you wish to pursue estate litigation over a trust, you may need to prepare yourself for a long legal battle.

Why contest a trust? If a trust was created or modified under peculiar circumstances, that may be a reason to contest it. If the grantor was not in the best state of mind when he or she created the trust, that may be a reason to question its validity. If the trustee is not fulfilling his or her duty, that too may be a reason to have a judge weigh in on the situation.

There are many reasons contest a trust. The issue comes in proving your case. This is not always an easy thing to do. To learn more about contesting trusts and other estate litigation matters, please take a moment and visit our firm’s website.
