As we have seen in the past with television shows like The People’s Court and other similar types of shows, the viewing public likes to watch people duke it out over legal matters. Viewers also enjoy reality TV in general.
Estate dispute cases may be the next centerpiece for a reality TV show.
According to an article that is appearing on The Trust Advisor website, there is going to be a show revolving around disputes that wealthy family members are engaged in over inheritances. According to reports, the objective will be to guide the feuding family members toward some type of resolution.
If you are aware of an ongoing dispute within a wealthy family over someone’s estate, the producers of the show would like to hear about it. You can share what you know with The Trust Advisor staff, and they will pass along the information to the producers, if the situation sounds promising.
People sometimes fail to mention everything that is relevant to their attorneys when they are engaged in the process of estate planning. This is a big mistake.
It is very important to be completely forthcoming. This would include mentioning the possibility of someone stepping forward to challenge your wishes.
If you are aware of the fact that a challenge could be presented by a particular individual or individuals who won’t be happy with the contents of your estate plan, let your attorney know about it.
