A: File what? Where? For what? After she has mishandled the trust in what way?

Obviously, your ability to describe your actual issue is severely impaired. But, the Internet is not a place to fix that. The things you are not telling us are not privileged and can come back to haunt you. Get a consult with a lawyer licensed in your state. Let the lawyer read the trust. Tell the lawyer what real facts are of concern to you. Many lawyers are offering Zoom consults during Covid-19.
