Trust & Estate cases can be challenging because family dynamics come into play. However, when an executor administrates the trust or estate in a manner inconsistent or unfair with the trust or will, you will need to go to court to ensure your interests are represented. Which can be especially difficult when one lives out of the Santa Barbara, CA area. Trusts and estates are administered by the County Superior Court where they were established.
It’s not unusual for families to disperse across the country.
