Estate litigation is a complex process. Litigation regarding an estate can involve wills, guardianships, trusts and estates, claims of breach of fiduciary duty, and claims of misappropriated or mismanaged estate property. Regardless of whether you’re in need of estate representation or individual representation, you want to work with an attorney who is understanding and experienced in the matter at hand. Many people involved in estate litigation are still grieving from the loss of a loved one. Allow your attorney to focus on the details of the case so that this burden is not placed on you.
North Carolina is very strict about how executors and estate administrations manage the estate after the death of the decedent. Occasionally, however, an executor fails in their duties. This can occur in several ways, such as improper management of the estate, theft, lack of management of real estate assets, or inappropriate investments. If these acts are suspected, a petition may be filed seeking removal of the executor. When the performance of an executor is challenged by someone else, both parties will need legal representation. Whether you’re an executor in this position or a beneficiary who feels that the estate is being mismanaged, you need to speak to an attorney about your situation.
