2022 The Will Contest Meets the 21st Century: Challenging Non-Probate Transfers

Total Credits: 1.0 Self Study


Recording available after original program date, 10/4/2022

Missouri law for will and trust contests is well-established.  But what about non-probate transfers?  As non-probate transfers become increasingly common, entire estates can pass to beneficiaries without a probate estate ever being opened or a trust being used.  As a result, challenging non-probate transfers is becoming an important part of fiduciary litigation.  This seminar will discuss the tools available to challenge non-probate transfers, and steps planners can use to try to protect against such challenges.
Topics discussed during this seminar will include the following:
•    The legal requirements for different types of non-probate transfers;
•    Potential grounds for challenging the validity of non-probate transfers;
•    Causes of action and remedies for challenging non-probate transfers;
•    Transfers in fraud of marital rights; and
•    Strategies for protecting non-probate transfers from later challenges.
