Trust Contests in Fort Myers

What is a trust?

A trust is an estate planning tool that allows one person, the trustee, to hold property for the benefit of another person, the beneficiary. Created by a grantor, trusts can be beneficial to help avoid estate tax or the probate process. There are a variety of trusts that can be created for different purposes, with the intent to benefit various individuals or even pets. Regardless of the type of trust, it is important that it is properly managed by the trustee.

Types of Trust Mismanagement

Do you believe that your trustee is mismanaging your trust assets? Mismanagement can occur in a variety of different ways, including:

  • Personally using trust assets
  • Not adhering to the requirements of the Florida Trust Code
  • Unnecessary delays
  • Failure to seek proper legal counsel
  • Other wrongdoing
