Purpose of a Petition for Confirmation
Typically, trust administration can be handled entirely outside of the realm of the court. The involvement of the court comes into play when a dispute arises and clarification is required. The probate court allows dispute remedies for the trustee, the beneficiary or the creditor of the estate. They may seek legal assistance from the court through a petition for confirmation. The petition for confirmation can be for the appointment of the trustee or trustees or for an asset. Oftentimes, a petition to confirm trust property is issued to the trust if specific requirements are met after the maker of the trust has died.
