No matter how well planned, there is always the potential that someone will disagree with the estate. This adds an additional layer of conflict and stress during what is an already trying time, especially since these disputes have the potential to permanently impact family relationships.
At KSW Lawyers, our wills and estates team are well versed in handling estate matters, including litigation and disputes, and have represented clients regarding estates of varying size and complexity. Our focus is on working with you and your family towards an amicable resolution whenever possible, and protecting your rights when it is not.
As an estate executor, you have a legal duty to fulfill the wishes of the deceased. Although probate might look simple, it is a complicated legal process with nuances that change depending on the nature of the estate administration, and often requires legal assistance to resolve smoothly and swiftly. Additionally, not everyone has a will at their death, and any will -- especially one that does not provide adequately for spouses and children -- can be challenged through estate litigation.
Our team can help you seamlessly navigate the probate and estate administration process by providing practical, up-to-date information and assisting with the various tasks associated with your role as executor. Whether you’re dealing with a simple probate application, a more complex one, or one involving disputes, special circumstances, and estate litigation, our team can provide timely advice and assistance to minimize legal stress.
