Trusts consist of trustors, or the people creating the trust, a trustee who manage the assets of the trust, and beneficiaries who are entitled to receive the income generated by and/or the principal contained within the trust. Common disputes that arise with trusts are improper management by the trustee, outright theft by a trustee, or failure of a trustee to make proper distributions to beneficiaries. Depending upon the severity of violation, the first step is to petition the court to remove the current trustee and appoint a substitute trustee. Secondly, depending again upon the nature of the violation, damages can be sought against the trustee for failing to properly execute their duties or stealing trust income or assets.
