When estate disputes involve siblings

Estate disputes arise for diverse reasons and no two are identical. Unfortunately, we know that some estate disputes can be especially disheartening and tough to work through, such as those which involve family members. If you are going through an estate dispute with your sibling in Newport Beach, or another part of California, it is especially important to make sure that you handle the disagreement appropriately.

Sometimes, people allow themselves to be taken advantage of because they do not want to initiate a conflict within the family. For example, someone who is a beneficiary may not receive assets that were supposed to be given to them, but they are afraid to take action because the executor of the estate is their brother or sister. Estate disputes of any kind can be emotional, but those involving siblings can be very tough to work through. To make things worse, these disputes can come on the heels of a traumatic loss and many people do not want to go through additional emotional pain.

You may also be accused of failing to handle your fiduciary duties properly, even if the allegations are completely baseless. For example, a disgruntled family member may claim that you have neglected to handle your loved one's estate properly and they may believe that they were supposed to receive property that they were not entitled to. Regardless of the nature of your estate dispute, having a good understanding of your options and how you will handle these legal matters is vital.
