Rendering a Trust Invalid

When disputes arise regarding a trust or its beneficiaries, it may be necessary to investigate the validity of the trust. The validity of a trust is integral to beneficiaries’ and other involved people’s futures, as it can determine whether the beneficiaries or other parties entirely are actually entitled to the trust. Under certain circumstances, a trust may be considered invalid. However, proving that this is the case can be difficult on one’s own. As such, many people seek the legal help of a skilled trust litigation attorney to help them deal with this matter.

What Makes a Trust Invalid?

In most cases, what makes a trust invalid is a problem with its creation. For instance, a trust might be legally considered invalid if it:

  • Was created through intimidation or force
  • Was created by a person of unsound mind
  • Was created through deceptive practices

All of these reasons might render a trust invalid. Additionally, if a trust is later revoked, or if it is found to be forged in any way, it is likely that a ruling would render the trust invalid. This can certainly affect the financial situation of any designated beneficiary or others involved in the trust dispute, so it’s important to know your rights when dealing with trust litigation.
