thanks to this website, i got through the very difficult task of caring for my 94 year old father. he passed away 3 weeks ago yesterday. i am his successor trustee and i am starting the process of executing the terms of the trust.. my oldest brother is trustee of my mothers trust. which is supposed to end upon my fathers death. it is all stocks and my father was living off of the dividends. this brother will not answer my calls or emails. myself and my 2 brothers are equal beneficiaries in both trusts. we dont trust this brother who is trustee of our mothers trust. my father didnt trust him either but thought our interests were protected by the trust. can this brother refuse to distribute? how long is he allowed to wait. her will stated that the trust would end at the time of my father's death and its principal and gains should be equallly ditributed.
