Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Is this 45 day period something that is referenced in the trust itself?
Who is telling you that there is a 45 day "waiting period" before trust assets can be disbursed to a successor beneficiary?
Ok, that is what I thought.. There is no statutory 45 day waiting period under the TX Trust Code that mandates this delay. So this would either be a specific directive in the trust itself, or is some in house policy of the trustee's company.
With that said, I would still contact them again and ask them to send you a copy of their internal policy that outlines this requirement just to be sure as I wouldn't really take their word for it.
