First, to start litigation involving a trust you need to have standing to sue. You have standing if you are at trustee, beneficiary, or the holder of the power of appointment, power to revoke, or power to withdraw property.
The second aspect is the ground to bring a lawsuit. There are many grounds to petition the court, but they usually involve the trust administration or removing property from the trust.
There are also two categories of petitions. The first is for routine functioning of the trust such as the removal or addition of a trustee. The second is for actions where you believe there has been misconduct or some sort of wrong committed. These actions will typically require a greater investment than the routine petitions.
