Trustees Stealing from Florida Trusts
Trustees stealing from Florida trusts.
Are you a beneficiary of a Florida trust? Did you know that there’s specific cases in Florida that deal with trustees taking improperly or stealing trust funds? The appellate courts call them defalcations. That’s just an odd term to mean improperly taking assets.
If you think your trustee has taken assets from the trust improperly, be careful. In some instances, you only have six months to object to that taking of the money by the trustee. And remember, the law doesn’t help those who remain silent. The law helps those who exercise their rights. So talk to an experienced trust litigation attorney about what your trustee’s doing with your money.
