In order to avoid this these individuals are looking for different forms of mortgage foreclosure defense.

Trust and Wills Disputes
In order to protect their property and assets when they die, many people set up trusts or wills that dictate where and to whom their money will go. Often, the intention behind making such a document is to eliminate inheritance problems that will most likely arise; however, wills and trusts do not always completely do away with such issues. Disputes often arise over these arrangements either because of questioned validity or a belief that the document was created by undue force. For individuals on either side of the argument, it is important to understand what these documents really are and how they are seen by the legal system.
