    Default Disinherited Beneficiary In A Trust By Trustee

    I was a beneficiary in a trust I never received anything.
    I never was recognized as a beneficiary by the trustee only the court.
    I did not contest the trust.
    Other beneficiarys received payment.

    The trustee designated the property to someone else which I was told was in her power. I was not the only one this was done to in the trust.

    I later found out the trustee received the life insurance and kept it all without reporting it to the beneficiaries or the new trustee after she quit the trust.

    My question is I want to sue for her designating my inheritance to other beneficiaries left me out and then kept the inheritance.


    The trust is now closed less then a year how long do I have to sue statue of limitations in California.

    Can I sue the trustee for keeping the life insurance? She clamied it was a honor to receive the life insurance and it was a gift.

    This will involve examination of the trust and the records of the estate, and also your relationship with the deceased. You should consult a lawyer next week about your rights and the possibility of litigation, if possible taking the supporting documentation with you.

    Some trusts give the trustee the "power of appointment." That means they get to designate the beneficiaries.

    Since there was some type of legal action, you really need an attorney to look over the court file and explain it to you. You can contact the clerk of court and get a copy.
