Update To Testamentary Trust Accounting Procedures In the Court of Chancery

With a recent amendment to 12 Del. C. §3521, trust beneficiaries can waive the need for future judicial accountings. For all existing testamentary trust cases for which waivers are not, or cannot be, obtained, and for any new testamentary trust cases, pleadings or accountings filed after July 1, 2014 must be electronically filed in the Court of Chancery Guardianship and Trusts Court on the File and ServeXpress system.  Specific procedures related to e-filing testamentary trust case documents can be found at /Chancery/docs/TUWnotice.pdf.
