Estate disputes can arise when someone decides to contest the Will. This is a legal proceeding in which the validity of the Will is challenged. Issues include whether the decedent had capacity when the Will was signed, or whether the Will was signed under undue influence.

Another common estate dispute concerns misappropriation by the executor or administrator. Under Kentucky law, executors and administrators have limited fees. Sometimes people serving in these positions violate their fiduciary duty by overpaying themselves and depriving the heirs of assets. Investigatory accounting can help establish wrongdoing or provide proof of compliance with the law.

Business succession disputes are also common. If the decedent controlled a corporation at the time of his or her death, the decedent’s heirs sometimes dispute who should assume control of the corporation. In these situations, the corporation can suffer if the dispute is not resolved efficiently. Attorneys at the Clark Law Office can assist in helping to clarify the rights of the parties.
