Can someone contest a trust like breaking or contesting a will?

By March 16, 2015

Anyone can hire an attorney to question how legal affairs have been arranged. So, in theory, anyone can attempt to contest a trust. In practice, however, it is much more difficult than contesting a will. As all wills must be probated, any interested party can easily join the routine probate court proceedings and contest the will at that time. In contrast, someone who wants to contest a trust must take the initiative to begin his or her own lawsuit, complete with court and attorney fees.
