Losing a loved one, or assisting a family member who can no longer care for themselves is stressful. Having to deal with the legal complications that arise out of those situations can often make things even harder. Probate, trust administration, guardianships, and conservatorships all involve an executor or fiduciary managing assets for the benefit of others. When questions arise regarding whether a fiduciary has acted properly or concerning the validity or intent of estate planning documents the disputes are played out in probate court.
