Trust Contests in Fort Myers
What is a trust?
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.
