Whatever the reason, the trustee or a person with a financial interest in the trust may apply to court to approve a trust variation on behalf of all those persons who cannot consent (incapable persons, minor children, and the unborn and unascertained). de VRIES LITIGATION can help beneficiaries or trustees apply to vary a trust or respond to an application to vary a trust.
