Nassau County Probate Dispute Attorney
Involved in a probate dispute in Long Island?
The area of law known as probate is frequently contentious. Disputes occur in probate proceedings on a regular basis, for a variety of reasons. As probate law is complex and filled with numerous rules, many attorneys are frustrated in their attempts to represent individuals in disputes. That is why it is important to consult with an experienced Nassau County elder law attorney when attempting to resolve your probate dispute.
The probate process can lead to disputes of all types. Common examples include:
- Poor estate management - If an executor fails to manage a decedent's estate properly, it can lead to dispute in the form of an heir challenging the appointment of the executor and seeking to appoint a new one.
- Creditor claims - A creditor may claim that a decedent owes money. If an executor doubts the validity of the claim and refuses payment, the dispute must be resolved in court.
- Criminal activity - If an executor is engaged in illegal activity in regards to an estate, such as embezzling the decedent's funds for personal gain, an heir can take legal action in an effort to dismiss the executor and obtain reimbursement for the stolen funds.
- Property disputes - If a family member of a decedent claims that certain property was given to him or her by the decedent, an executor may need to involve the court in order to establish the validity of the claim.
