About Estate Litigation in Long Island, Suffolk, Queens and Nassau
After a person passes, their estate must be handled either through probate or estate administration. Although it would be wonderful to think that the death of a person, especially a love one, would unite family and friends, the fact is that the opposite may happen. Parties may dispute issues ranging from the financial assets they or another received (or didn't receive) to the distribution of cherished heirlooms.
There are many complex issues involved with estate litigation. The statute of limitations, or the time that one has to sue, demands immediate action to contest a will and if not done timely you may forfeit your rights. If you are the fiduciary or trustee handling the estate during probate, you may need an attorney to help you defend against legal suits brought on by disappointed inheritors or creditors who may challenge the actions taken regarding the estate.
