Family Disputes

phil-and-seanFamily members do not always agree when a loved one becomes sick or when they pass away. These tremendously emotional circumstances heighten anxieties, and often bring long standing acrimony bubbling to the surface.

While there is a plethora of circumstances that can arise, some of them include:

  • Failures of fiduciaries (trustees, personal representatives or POAs) to communicate with family members and be transparent in their actions;
  • Disagreements between family members regarding medical protocols for a sick parent;
  • Challenges to POAs, wills and trusts relating to alleged incapacity – particularly if it involves disinheritance;
  • The transfer of a family held company that does not involve all family members;
  • Disputes involving the distribution of jewelry, artwork, furniture or personal effects; and
  • Non blood related family members (daughters-in-law, sisters-in-law, sons-in-law, etc.), though not legally involved, creating and sustaining impediments to various family issues.
