A work colleague has a situation where her father died 2 years ago, leaving his estate in an irrevocable trust. The trustee, girlfriend at the time, has still not distributed the assets (a house and liquid assets) to the sole beneficiary - deceased's child - nor has she filed any statements.
Is there a time limit to moving forward? Does this have to be probated? Shouldn't there have been some hearing after the death?
What are the rules in this kind of case (please feel free to share links)?
