Trustee Release And Indemnification Agreement
Third, an agent may ask you to exempt it from a third-party claim that may reasonably arise from the distribution.

Release is valid until the agent does not threaten to withhold your trust distribution until you sign the release. In the appeal, the Court of Appeal of Georgia annulled and found that the release was not an instrument of trust and that the release was not contrary to public order insofar as it applied to the implementation before the execution of the release. Second, the agent has the right to withhold an adequate reserve of fiduciary assets to pay expected trust expenses, including taxes, debts, trust and accounting fees, and other administrative costs.
