Will and Trust Construction in New York
Will and Trust Evaluation in Construction and Language
Ideally, a will and/or trust is written in clear, unambiguous language.
However, there are cases in which these issues are open to interpretation,
and there are ambiguities with regard to the division and distribution
of assets, the identity of the beneficiaries and tax issues related to
Novick & Associates has represented interested parties in asking the court for its interpretation
of any and all ambiguous language. Every will and trust is written with
specific language, some of which can be less than clear with regard to
the actual inheritance due to one or more parties, how assets should be
divided or other crucial issues.
