A living trust (also called an “inter vivos” or “revocable” trust) is a file that enables a person to position his or her properties into a trust during life so that those properties can be dispersed to designated recipients by a selected representative upon death.
What is the procedure of contesting a living trust, and how can a beneficiary fight back when a living trust is contested?
When someone decides to object to a trust document, he or she should submit a claim in a state probate court. These individuals might look to medical records or expert testament to prove that the grantor was not psychologically sound at the time of a trust’s creation.
Another typical factor people may object to a living trust involves excessive impact over the trust grantor. Often, a caretaker is accountable for unnecessary impact, although other individuals may also be responsible.
If an individual is able to encourage a probate court to invalidate the terms of a living trust or a trust amendment, then the assets are distributed according to the prior will or trust, if one exists.
