I am sorry to hear about this situation. It sounds like you are the beneficiary
of a trust
. I am going to assume that this is what you mean here. If not, reply and let me know.
The trustee in CA owes duties to the beneficiary. See here:www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/displaycode?section=prob&group=15001-16000&file=16000-16015
These include a multitude of duties, such as duties of loyalty, accounting, etc.
One can ASK for an accounting to see how much money is in the trust, in writing.
ONE can DEMAND in writing that money is to be dispersed for something if the trust allows it.
If the trustee is not following these duties and/or the trust's directions, then the beneficiary can file in Court to ask the Judge to ORDER her to do this, or, have her dismissed and someone else appointed to the position if she refuses to or cannot
