Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.
The Michigan Trust Code now provides a statute of limitations for challenging the validity of a trust that was revocable at the settler’s death. Such a trust contest must be brought within the earlier of: (1) two years after the settler’s death or (2) six months after the trustee sent the challenger a specified notice. The Michigan Trust Code provides that the capacity to create, amend, revoke, or add property to a revocable trust is the same as that required to make a will.
You can sue here to challenge on such grounds as undue influence and lack of capacity.
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.Thank again.
