What to do about an unauthorized use of Trust funds?
Question Details: My friend's mother left her kids $15,000 un a Will or Trust fund. However, my friend this money on her kids and now faces jail time for it. Is there anything she can do to stop this from happening?
I would ask the district attorney's office that as a condition of the conviction that an order of restitution be ordered against the person who stole the $15,000. In the alternative I would seek consultation with a Wills and trust attorney in the locality to see what the legal options are. One can be found on attorneypages.com.
