It is unfortunately the case that litigation can occur in relation to an estate after the passing of the decedent.  Additional dependants can make a claim to the estate, ex-spouses can claim an interest in certain assets, creditors can attempt to take funds from the estate, and even beneficiaries can fight for a larger share. Many more similar situations can occur, which can interfere with the realization of your wishes as well as cause trouble and heartache for your loved ones.  The best defense against this is to enlist the help of a Winnipeg estate planning lawyer to ensure that your willand estate are established correctly.
