Battles between beneficiaries are part and parcel of a busy estate and trust litigation practice. Common battle recipe ingredients include a dose of dementia, simmering family differences, frozen relationships, and diced communications mixed with a wedge of sibling rivalry.
Like soup, particular ingredients might stand out. It depends on the case. Sometimes it's the power of attorney holder's wrongdoing to an elder adult. Other times the secret sauce is a sibling actually "on the sauce" - a both a substance abuser and an elder abuser. Then, of course, there are classic stepmother disputes with their stepchildren over a decedent spouse's estate and trust assets. You get the idea - variables abound.
