Although beneficiaries regularly petition to remove estate and trust fiduciaries, beneficiaries do so to varying degrees of success. This program will address the statutory grounds for removing estate and trust fiduciaries, the procedural steps associated with successfully seeking removal, the availability of suspension under SCPA 712, and the strategies that fiduciaries can employ in order to avoid removal or suspension.
