  1. You are subject to it's provision unless the trust was executed improperly, incompetently, fraudulently, under duress, or for an illegal purpose.

    You would be well-served to discuss your dilemma with a New York trusts attorney in a confidential forum as soon as possible.


  2. Take will and trust documentation to a lawyer to review the terms regarding the length of the trust and the provisions with respect to the trustee being in control of the assets.

  3. I agree with my colleagues that you should take the trust documents to a local trust and estates attorney. Your questions likely can all be answered by looking at the trust documents and evaluating the other ancillary facts.
