How Inheritances Tear Families Apart
Receiving an inheritance isn’t always a positive.
You know, there’s a saying from a lawyer down here in Florida that you never really know someone until you share an inheritance with them. And that’s a pretty true statement. When mom or dad pass away and they’re going to leave an inheritance to you, although it’s sad, you’ve lost a loved one, the idea that you’re receiving something in inheritance should not be burdensome, expensive, costly, or stressful. Yet that’s what happens sometimes when family members engage in probate litigation. The litigation, the fighting over money, the fighting over blood and relationships can be very, very stressful. It can also be very costly. How you deal with that and how your trial attorneys deal with that are important factors in the success and the outcome of any probate lawsuit or inheritance lawsuit.
