What happens if there is a dispute over a trust?

Obviously, when someone creates a trust, they hope that everything will run smoothly and there will not be any problems. Unfortunately, this is often not the case and disputes frequently arise between the beneficiaries and trustees. The most typical type of dispute is where a beneficiary or co-trustee believes that a trustee is intending to violate the terms of a trust, or that he or she has already violated the trust by not property performing his or her duties. Where they cannot resolve the issue on their own, they will have to file a lawsuit and seek relief from the court. In limited circumstances, such a lawsuit can even be filed by someone who is not a trustee or beneficiary.
