My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: California
I have been assigned as trustee for a trust and living will.
There are a total of five beneficiaries four of the five have accepted the accounting. The one who did not, is making threats against the trust and it has been going on for about a year (back and fourth with letters).
The beneficiary is now saying they want their inheritance without signing for the accounting. By cashing the check is it a form of accepting?
With all of the threats that have been made, I am wondering if the inheritance money will be used to put up an even bigger fight.
What is the time limit for that beneficiary to appeal the trust? (Threats for a year but no action and nothing has been done wrong to fight.)
It says that if someone contest, they will be kicked out. Would the beneficiary still be able to do anything when it states this?
The most important question I have is...
How do I end my job as trustee if there is a person who is fighting? (I would like the weight lifted off of my shoulders.)
I would really appreciate some answers.. This has gone on way too long and I am really confused on how to put this to rest.
