Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
What state were you in when the money was spent on son?
Did you as trustee have the authority to spend the money on son's education according to the trust documents?
Ok, if this was in PA, then if there was an issue here with the use of the funds, then the beneficiary (i.e. son) would have had 4 years to pursue a breach of contract claim or 2 years to claim some type of fraud..
So you are correct that this is long past the time when son could legally raise any issue about what happened to the money, especially since he was an adult at the time the trust was established.
