Improper Gifts And Transfers
It takes years of hard work to build up assets, real property and savings. Unfortunately, those savings can disappear quickly when a serious medical condition or end-of-life care requires constant medical attention, particularly if someone takes advantage of the situation to line his or her pocket.
If threats, undue influence or other illegal or fraudulent means were used to transfer funds or real property, New York considers those transfers invalid and the assets will go back to the original owner of those assets.
At Salem Shor & Saperstein, LLP, our attorneys know how to litigate cases involving fraudulent conveyances and other behavior that runs counter to the wishes of the person transferring the assets, or the testator. We are regularly in the Surrogate’s Court defending the rights and interests of our clients.
