REMOVE A TRUSTEE?
Need help with a Trust? Want to remove a trustee? Are you a beneficiary? Beneficiaries often need assistance obtaining information, obtaining their fair share of the Trust, and making sure that the Trust is administered fairly according to its terms. Sometimes, it may be necessary to remove the trustee so a successor may step in. We know how to remove a trustee, when removal is appropriate, and when it may be possible to get rid of a trustee.
Arizona trustees must provide beneficiaries with reasonable information including some specific information that must be provided at least once a year. If you are a beneficiary of an Arizona trust, you are entitled to receive certain information. You are also entitled to be treated fairly by the trustee. Many self-directed trusts we have seen over the years, such as living trusts, are not managed properly by the original trustee/s. Often, trustees neglect to allocate assets upon the first death of a married couple. Compliance with the Arizona Trust Code and the Arizona Revised Principal and Income Act is often less than stellar. We help beneficiaries, plagued by an errant trustee, obtain their fair share. Removal (firing) by the Court may be accomplished for a number of reasons, and we can help beneficiaries remove or replace a trustee.
