Removing & Appointing a Trustee through Courts

Colorado Probate Attorneys

A trustee is the person responsible for managing the assets of a trust for the benefit of the beneficiary. The trustee has a fiduciary duty to manage the assets according to the trust. Generally, the settlor who created the trust names a trustee to manage the trust. However, if the trustee has not been named, a court may appoint a trustee. We at Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C. can assist you with the removal or appointment of trustees.

Reasons for the Removal of a Trustee

A trustee may also be removed through the courts by a request from the settlor, a co-trustee, a beneficiary, or the trustee him or herself.

The court will likely remove a trustee if the following occurs:

  • The trustee committed a serious breach of trust
  • Lack of cooperation among co-trustees substantially impairs the administration of the trust
  • The court determines that removal of the trustee best serves the interests of the beneficiaries
  • There has been a substantial change of circumstances and the court finds that removal of the trustee best serves the interests of the all of the beneficiaries, and is not inconsistent with a material purpose of the trust.
