    (a) The Probate Division of the Superior Court may intervene in the administration of a trust to the extent its jurisdiction is invoked by an interested person or as provided by law.

    (b) A trust is not subject to continuing judicial supervision unless ordered by the Probate Division of the Superior Court.

    (c) A judicial proceeding involving a trust may relate to any matter involving the trust's administration, including a request for instructions and an action to declare rights.

    (d) Upon motion of any party in a probate action concerning the administration of a trust under the provisions of this title, the presiding probate judge shall permit an appeal to be taken to the Superior Court from any interlocutory order or ruling if the judge finds that the order or ruling involves a controlling question of law as to which there is substantial ground for difference of opinion and that an immediate appeal may materially advance the termination of the litigation.
