Do You Need To Contest A Will In Virginia Or Speak To An Estate Law Lawyer Regarding A Will, Trust Or Estate Dispute?
When a person dies, or even before dying, their wealth is placed into the hands of someone, such as a trustee or an executor. This entity has a fiduciary duty to manage the wealth properly and to make sure it’s given at the appropriate time to the beneficiaries who were entitled to receive it as part of their inheritance.However, sometimes, these people don’t fulfill these duties. When that happens, it’s necessary to have an experienced estate law attorney take action in court.
