- The executor is a has no idea how to manage the estate. He fails maintain the decedent's house or pay the mortgage payment. The house falls into decay and the bank wants to foreclose. An heir is beside himself because he fears there will be no inheritance left for him. He needs to challenge the executor's appointment and get a new one appointed, perhaps himself.
- The executor is a criminal. He is dipping into the decedent's funds to take his family to Hawaii. The heir needs to get the executor excused and force reimbursement of the estate.
- The executor tries to get the heir's brother to turn over the decedent's coin collection. The brother says the decedent gave it to him a year ago. Is the brother telling the truth? This may have to get resolved in court.
- A creditor claims the decedent borrowed $5000 from him and promised to pay it back. There is a questionable note backing it up that looks like a forgery. The executor rejects the creditor's claim. Now the creditor and executor need to hash it out in court.
