Hello: This is Phillipsesq. Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry to read about your difficulties.
Can the discrecianary trust be turned into a SNT?
Response: No, because the Trustees are not the grantors/settlors of the trust and cannot change the terms of the trust. However, if the co-trustees are not being reasonable as to your requests for additional distributions, you may have to file complaint with the Court to order them to release additional funds to you.
I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.
