Disputes resulting from Deceased Estates

The executor of a deceased estate cannot get involved in disputes between heirs or potential heirs. In the past, the parties had no option but to resort to litigation and often they could not afford lawyers, resulting in someone losing out on an inheritance.

This is where our mediator steps in. We mediate the dispute quickly at far less cost than litigation costs. Since the disputing parties are often family members, it is important that the aggression and resentment is dealt with immediately, before permanent harm is done to the family relationships.

Mediation also ensures that the process of winding up the estate is not delayed and payment of an inheritance is done quickly.
