Disputes ongoing over James Brown's estate

In January 2018, a lawsuit was filed in California regarding the estate of the singer James Brown. It is one of more than a dozen challenges filed since his death in 2006, and their steady stream means that the underprivileged children he hoped to help as well his other beneficiaries have not received any of the assets intended for them.

When and why you should update your will

Probate litigation and disputes between family members after a loved one dies and their estate is administered are two of the worst heart-wrenching and time-consuming things that can happen in the area of estate planning and probate law. When beneficiaries and family members squabble over another person's assets because the grantor had an incomplete will, a will that wasn't current, or was influenced by outside source in an undue fashion, the litigation can be painful, costly, and stressful.
