Trust Administration

Dear Len & Rosie,

My mother died one week ago. She has a trust. I am the trustee. My 33-year-old nephew (her grandson) has lived with my mother from the time he was 18. In the last few years he has gotten into drugs. Two weeks before my mother died, my nephew took her to several banks, and coerced her into giving him $2,950.

We did an intervention on him. He was told to go to treatment or go to jail. He said he would enter a drug rehab program but of course he didn't do it. I changed the locks on mother's home, but a police officer said I have to let him back in because he gets his mail there. He lived with my mother for fifteen years and never paid her a dime. Please help.

Karin
