Ohio Farm and Land Inheritance Dispute Lawyer
A family farm is defined as one in which the ownership and control of a farm business is held by a group of individuals, related by blood, marriage or adoption. Assets might include a home, land, barns and other buildings, agricultural equipment, and livestock. Priceless sentimental value is also tied to a family farm, as oftentimes ownership has been handed down and carried through generations. What happens when one of those family members who has ownership of the farm passes away, and the beneficiaries are at odds? What if you think a deed transfer was incorrectly handled? Our team of probate litigation attorneys has decades of experience handling these types of legal matters.
