A: Sorry, but your question is unclear. If you believe the trustee is acting inappropriately, review the trust agreement carefully to determine if the trustee is given authority to act in the manner you have described. If not, I would notify the trustee in writing of your concerns and ask for a written explanation. If that is unsatisfactory, you will have to file a lawsuit against the trustee asking the Court to remove him/her form the position and to make the trustee repay the value of the things that were improperly disposed of. You should retain an attorney to assist in this process, it is not something you should try to do on your own.
