Bulgarian Inheritance Lawyers
Inheritance law governs the rights of a decedent's survivors to inherit property. A surviving spouse may be able to claim an inheritance despite what you may have written into your will. Children, and sometimes grandchildren, also have a right to claim an inheritance when a parent or grandparent dies.
What is a will?
A will is a legal document that sets out a person's wishes for his/her property, assets and children when that person dies. An experienced wills and trusts lawyer can advise people who are writing up their will of all legal requirements involved in estate planning, such as probate laws.
A will contest arises when one or more parties contests the validity of a will. Specifically, that party argues that the will does not represent or reflect the actual intent of the person the will represents (the testator). For example, the contesting party could argue that the testator was subject to undue influence when writing the will or lacked the capacity to write the will.
What is a trust?
A trust is a right in property that is held in a fiduciary relationship by one party for the benefit of another. The trustee holds the title to the property on behalf of the beneficiary, who will receive the benefits of the trust. A trust fund is a separate legal entity that protects property and assets from probate and taxes. Amongst some trustees can arise a conflict of interests. Cases like this often involve allegations of breach of fiduciary duty or failure to protect the assets of the trust.
