Legal Question

Asked on: 9/03/10, 8:20 am

I am the trustee of my mother's trust. She recently passed away. The distribution to beneficiaries states that I am to get 1/2 and my sister is to get 1/2. It also states that if my sister predeceases my mother (which she did), this share shall be distributed to me, BUT this is subject to the following provisions:In the event that under the foregoing provisions a part of the Trust Estate would otherwise be distributed to any descendant of a deceased child of the Trustor (my mother) who is under the age of 21 that part shall instead be retained by the Trustee as a separate trust for the benefit of such descendant of the deceased child. My sister's children have children under the age of 21. Does this provision mean that the 1/2 that would have gone to me would instead be put in trust for my great nieces and nephew?
