    There are several reasons why Trusts are “attacked”. Here are a few of them:
    1. A person who feels that he/she should not have been “cut out” claims that the Settlor (the person setting up the Trust) did not have the requisite “testamentary capacity” to make that “cutting out decision”.
    2. A person who is “cut out” because the Settlor left all or most of the inheritance to someone else feels that the “someone else” unduly influenced the Settlor into making that decision.
    3. A person who does not like certain decisions made by the Settlor’s “After-Death Agent” (the Successor Trustee) claims that the Agent is going against the terms and instructions of the Trust.


    A Will is not “automatic”. Just because you’ve been mentioned as a beneficiary of a Will does not mean you can grab the inheritance and go home. The Will has to be “probated”…and this is one of the services we perform.


    1. File the Will with the Court.
    2. Complete the “application” to have the Will authenticated.
    3. Complete the “application” to have the person in the Will appointed by the court as the Executor.
    4. Send notice to any creditors of the deceased person who signed the Will and deal with any Creditors’ Claims that are filed.
    5. Prepare the “application” to have the Probate Judge sign the Order which transfers the estate from the deceased person to the live beneficiaries named in the Will.
    6. Deal with any “attacks” made on the Will by persons who are unhappy with the Will’s contents.
