What will happen to your belongings when you die? If you’ve established a trust or will, you probably included instructions for the disbursement of your property in the event of your death. If you haven’t planned your estate and written a will or trust, you property will be distributed according to state law. Establishing a legal will or trust is advisable for a variety of reasons.

Dealing with a Dispute
After a loved one dies, his / her property will probably enter probate. Sometimes, disputes arise during the probate process. These disputes are usually the result of a disgruntled beneficiary who didn’t get as much of the decedent’s estate as they had hoped. There are a variety of ways that a will or trust can be contested. For example, one might claim that the decedent was coerced into writing it. Similarly, the will or trust could be contested if a loved one believes that the decedent was tricked into signing it or deceived in any way when deciding what beneficiary would receive what property, assets, belongings, and more.
One of the most common reasons that wills or trust are disputed is because a beneficiary or other individual believes that the decedent was not in their right mind when they established their will or trust. For example, if you became disabled before you died, you may not have the mental capacity to make reasonable decisions regarding the disbursement of your estate. In this situation, a beneficiary of the decedent may have the legal right to contest the will or trust.
Similarly, if an individual who was not even named in the will believes that the decedent was not capable of establishing a will or trust, he / she may contest the legality the document as well.
