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.
