When a loved one passes away, you and your family will typically enter the probate process, where you will pay off the deceased’s debts and dispose of his or her assets. Your loved one’s will or estate plan will typically describe how to carry out this process according to his or her wishes. However, many disputes and litigation matters can arise during probate, including the following.

- Guardianship disputes
- Beneficiary and heir disputes
- Retirement and life insurance claims
- Executor misconduct
- Testamentary trusts

If you or your family encounters an issue during probate, you can raise a dispute or file a claim in an estate proceeding. Comal County has specific rules and requirements for pursuing probate litigation, so it is important to speak with an attorney who is familiar with these types of disputes. The attorneys at Marrs Ellis & Hodge, LLP can guide you through each stage of the litigation process and help secure the outcome you are seeking.
Trust Disputes in Comal County
Trusts are complex financial relationships between three parties: the settlor, who creates the trust; the beneficiary, the party for whom the trust was created; and the trustee, who has the responsibility of holding assets on behalf of the settlor for the benefit of the beneficiary. While this arrangement may seem straightforward, many disputes can arise while administering or managing a trust.
Common types of trust litigation matters that we handle at Marrs Ellis & Hodge, LLP include the following.
- Trustee removal, misconduct, or replacement
- Trust termination or modification
- Trust agreements that violate state laws
- Trust agreements with unclear or contradictory language
- Trust accounting and distributions
- Settlors without the legal capacity to create a trust
- Settlors who were unduly influenced when creating a trust
- Settlors who were coerced or forced into creating a trust
- Breach of fiduciary duty
If you encounter any issues while handling or being involved in a trust, you can take legal action. Your attorney can negotiate with the other parties to reach an optimal resolution. If this cannot be achieved, we will not hesitate to file a trust lawsuit to protect your best interests.
