What are the family dynamics?

Choosing a family member or a friend to serve as Trustee may put additional strain on the relationship between the beneficiary and the Trustee.  The beneficiary and the Trustee will have to work together and be able to get along with each other, so if there are any questions about the ability to do that, it may be better to appoint an unrelated person as the Trustee.
