A snapshot on Estate Ligation

Litigation over the estate of a loved one can arise for a number of different reasons. It may be as a result of a concern as to the validity of the Will itself or because someone feels that they have not been provided for sufficiently in the deceased’s last Will. It may also arise due to promises or arrangements the deceased person entered into or made during their lifetime. Depending on whether you are an Executor, a beneficiary or a potential beneficiary, estate ligation can involve the process of bringing a challenge against the Will/Estate or alternatively it could be defending such a claim or challenge.
