Avoid these Mistakes in your Florida Trust Lawsuit
First of all, recognize that the statute of limitations to exercise your rights in a Florida trust can be very very short. Including as short as six months, understand that.
The second thing that you need to understand is, while we have a Florida trust code, if you’re in court, you also need to know about the evidence code. Because if you’re involved in a trust dispute, you’re going to have a trial and you need to know whether you can get a jury trial or not.
Finally, if some type of fraud or concealment has occurred, you need to know whether you’re going to be in federal court or not. And then finally, you need to understand what your appellate rights are if there’s an appeal to your trust lawsuit.
At the end of your litigation is not the time to think about appellate issues. It’s during your trial.
