heir written on blocksThis is the first post in a series of articles which will address the rights of heirs when disputes arise over a trust in the state of Connecticut. We have chosen to address this topic due to the fact that many individuals either believe that they have no rights in the situation, or they otherwise may not understand their options. Taking immediate action can help to prevent a trust’s assets from being squandered. We are writing this series with the goal of providing information which will help people to better understand their options. It is also our goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of an attorney. If you require assistance, contact us today to speak with a lawyer.

We will be addressing several topics over our coming articles. Issues which we will analyze include:

  • The rights of Connecticut heirs in a trust dispute
  • How a beneficiary can receive a copy of a trust
  • The rights of heirs to receive information from the Trustee
  • The process of removing a Trustee
  • The need to hire an attorney to assist you

There are multiple reasons why we have chosen to address these issues. First, many individuals are not sure as to whether they can object to the actions of a Trustee, whether they can demand information, and more. Second, it is common for heirs to have not even seen a copy of the Trust, meaning they do not know if the terms of the instrument are being followed. Third, if a Trustee is not following the terms of the instrument, then it may be necessary to seek their removal. Finally, bringing a dispute in such matters can quickly become complicated. Retaining an attorney to assist you can be of the utmost importance.
