Can the probate judge order a noncompliant trustee to pay legal fees ?
Stockton, CA |
the trustee to my fathers living trust refuses to attot my portion of the estate to me as ordered. Can the probate judge order the trustee to pay my legal fees for having me take this back to court, or would I have to sue in a different court?
Yes, though it's in the judge's discretion. Be sure the "relief" part of your petition asks for the fees.
