Although we often focus on the practical and legal aspects of estate litigation in South Dakota, our attorneys understand that most estate litigation issues are rough on those involved and can create emotional difficulties that make even the simplest legal process seem impossible. 

Many of the actual difficulties families face after the death of a loved one have nothing to do with complicated laws or legal questions—they have to do with the emotional burden that comes with losing a loved one and carrying out her wishes. These difficulties are often left unspoken because they are so painful and embarrassing, but they are common to many families across South Dakota. It’s not unusual for our clients come to us facing pressures like:

  • The weight of grief. It’s never easy to lose someone you love, and it can be hard to take the necessary legal steps—or even think about taking those steps—when you are still grieving.  
  • Tensions with other family members and beneficiaries. Estate litigation matters can tear families apart, and you may find yourself hurt, angry, or saddened by another loved one’s actions during estate litigation. 
  • Difficult and emotional decisions regarding a loved one’s estate. Carrying out your loved one’s wishes is rarely as simple as it should be, and it may seem impossible to set your emotions aside when making difficult decisions about your loved one’s estate. 

Our Sioux Falls estate litigation attorneys understand there is more to an estate litigation case than the legal process, and we are here to answer your questions, explain what you need to know, and shoulder some of the burden for you. If you have lost a loved one and have questions about estate litigation in South Dakota, call our office today at 888-733-2992 for a free and confidential case evaluation.
