Estate Planning Insurance Expert Witnesses

First, estate planning insurance professionals (EPIPs) are experts at understanding the complex laws surrounding trusts and estates. They possess comprehensive knowledge and experience about state-specific probate laws, tax principles, trust regulations, legal processes, and much more. Because of their expertise in this field, they often serve as expert witnesses in court proceedings related to wills or trusts. Second, EPIPs can provide important evidence for a wide variety of cases. In lieu of personal testimony or document production evidence from involved members or beneficiaries of an estate plan case may not always be present. This is where an EPIP's expertise may serve as beneficial support for the accused party when determining matters such as testamentary capacity (the ability to make a valid will), due execution (if all requirements were met for the will to be legally binding), enforcement (if terms were followed from a will document that was already created) or intestacy proceedings (when there is no will). Finally, another crucial point often brought into question in these types of cases is whether fraud was committed at any point by one party against another during the processing and creation of an estate plan. In order to ensure proper checks and balances have been employed throughout all proceedings relating to any type of inheritance dispute EPIPs are usually called upon as expert witnesses in order to provide their insights on various elements regarding applicable statutes and best practices should have been applied throughout the process given current industry standards. At this juncture it also becomes exceedingly important that someone with technical proficiency thoroughly evaluates resources such as trust documents themselves providing expansive sources used in order reach informed conclusions with regards whether any attempts at deception had taken place or not during an inheritance transfer process affecting multiple parties involved within those deliberations.
