Beneficiaries Have Rights
Those who are named as beneficiaries of an estate or trust in New Jersey need to know one important thing: The law protects your right to obtain information from the estate administrator/executor, to report any alleged misdeeds of these individuals, and to receive your share of assets in a timely manner.
When the administrator or trustee fails to meet his or her duties, such as by withholding information or assets, you assert your rights in court. Due to this being a complex area of law, it is vital to obtain experienced counsel to help you understand your position and build a powerful claim on your behalf.
