Sec. 14. (Settlements;  Objections;  Hearing;  Surcharge)

(a) With respect to the annual written statement required by 30-4-5-12(a), a beneficiary or his personal representative will be deemed to have discharged the trustee from liability as to that beneficiary for all matters disclosed in the statement if he approves in writing the trustee's statement.

(b) In a proceeding in which the court has been requested by petition to approve a verified written statement of accounts, any person authorized by 30-4-5-12(c) to petition for an accounting may file an appropriate responsive pleading, and if he does so, he must file it within the period of time after notice that a responsive pleading is required to be filed after service of a prior pleading under the Indiana Rules of Procedure.

(c) When a responsive pleading filed under subsection (b) of this section includes objections to any matter contained in the trustee's statement, those objections must be specific unless the court orders otherwise.

(d) Upon request for approval of a verified written statement of accounts and the filing of objections, if any, the court shall determine the correctness of the statement and the validity and propriety of all actions of the trustee described in the statement and may take any additional action that it deems necessary.
