Jane Doe Deer :

You can certainly demand it. If you don't obtain it, however, which you may not, you will have to have a court hearing and get a court order to obtain it. Trusts, unlike wills, do not have to ever be filed with a court, and can often have stipulations that it must remain confidential.

If you do go to court, you can do it by phone if you set up a phone hearing well in advance of your court hearing.
