Is there a law stating a time limit to contest a trust? Is contesting the "trustee" separate from contesting the "trust"?

You may be interested in reading the How to Contest a Will or Trust article as a good resource to learn more about this topic. For further clarification on your specific situation, you may want to consult with a local Trusts Lawyer.

First, the answer to both of your questions depends on the applicable state law, and you didn't identify the applicable state.  Second, it's not clear what you mean by "contest a trust."  The more proper use refers to a claim that the trust is not valid (because of, e.g., failure to follow required formalities, undue influence, duress, etc.).  It is sometimes also used to describe a challenge to a trustee's action in the context of administering the trust.  It's also not clear what you mean by "contesting the trustee."
