Portland, OR asked in Estate Planning, Criminal Law, Elder Law and Probate for Oregon

Q: Is a remote or contingent beneficiary have any RIGHT to accounting or knowledge under OREGON STATUTE, if not in trust ?

Former trustee/thieving cousin that resigned after stealing 2.3 mil in timber, cash, property, now is nosing around after my father died because he was the only primary income beneficiary, which now makes us(my brother and i) primary beneficiaries of trust whatever is left after her thievery. She fraudulently edited the trust, yes we do know, yo say the residual after my father died, would be 1/2 to me and my brother and 1/2 to her. Now mind you this is now giving her about 85 % total of entire estate, and cash, timber .. when my brother and I and father lived on the property. She visited 3 times in her whole life. Not suspect at all.
