On December 15, 2011, the Massachusetts Senate passed S.2094, a combined bill containing both the Massachusetts Uniform Trust Code and the technical corrections to the Massachusetts Uniform Probate Code formerly in S.704. Section 38 of S.2094 also includes a new probate court fee schedule to correspond with the new rules.
Although the House passed a substantially identical version of the Massachusetts Uniform Trust Code (H.3756) on November 2, 2011, because S.2094 includes the MUPC technical corrections and the fee schedule, it has now been sent back to the House. We will keep you informed of any further developments.
