A: Good afternoon, I am sorry to hear about your father's passing. It seems as if the executor may not be following their assigned duties as the trust's executor. All is not lost, there are ways to encourage an executor of a trust to follow their required responsibilities, and/or you can ask the court to replace the trust executor. There are solutions for when an executor gets off course, so to speak. The type of lawyer that can help in this area of law is called a "trust litigation attorney". I hope this helps. Enjoy the day!
