Estate disputes have various causes. A beneficiary may question the actions of a personal representative or the estate trustee’s compensation. A disinherited family member may challenge the validity of a will or the testator’s capacity to sign the Will. A spouse, partner or may claim that the deceased failed to provide for them adequately. Debts, alimony, or child support obligations of the deceased may also come as a surprise for an executor or a beneficiary. Alternatively, the estate may turn out to be way smaller than expected because the deceased has made considerable gifts before death. In the case of a jointly owned property, the question is whether such assets are a part of the deceased’s estate or belong to the surviving joint owner.
