Challenging or Contesting a Trust

Can I challenge or contest a trust?

Yes.  But, first read the trust carefully and talk to a lawyer experienced with trusts.  If you challenge a trust and lose, you may lose your right to receive property from the trust.

Here are common reasons to challenge a trust: 

  • You believe the settlor was pressured into creating or signing the trust.
  • You think the settlor was not competent when s/he signed the trust.
  • The person (other than the settler) who helped set up the trust will benefit from the trust.
