    Live From Skill Training: Planning for the Probate Contest

    5 PM GMT

    Although many estate planning arrangements are implemented without controversy, given family dynamics involved in such planning, drafting attorneys should be mindful of the possibility that family members will disagree.   Those who are dissatisfied with an estate plan may resort to court proceedings.   This segment of the STEP program will introduce attendees to the essential concepts of probate litigation, including will and trust disputes, contests, and fiduciary litigation.   Those engaged in the estate planning process should be aware of the manner in which probate litigation arises so that they can plan to avoid such disputes (as much as possible).   After reviewing those concepts, this segment will explore some of the planning approaches that can be pursued to avoid probate litigation.
