It sounds as if you don't care for the decision your mother made and/or you want the home as soon as your mother passes away. Unfortunately, you don't get to make that decision. Just like no one can tell you what you must do with YOUR assets, no one can tell your mother what she can do with her money, home or other assets. Simply disliking a decision is not grounds for a proper challenge. However, if you have evidence that someone forced your mother do make the decision against her will, your mother had advanced Alzheimer's at the time she signed the trust, or some other legal reason to invalidate your mother's trust, then you may be able to challenge it after your mother passes away. It will be your burden to PROVE those claims in court, so gather your evidence and take it to a lawyer afte ryour mother passes away and see if it is enough evidence to invalidate your mother's trust. Don't forget, she can change her mind and re-write the trust at any time -- either giving you more assets or cutting you out all together, if she so desired -- so long as she has her mental capacity and understands what she is doing. I am not saying she will cut you out. Obviously, I don't know your mother or your situation. I am simply saying your mother can do whatever she wants with her own assets and you have to wait to see the final trust version at the time of her death to be able to know if there is something to challenge.

You do not provide a single legitimate basis to contest the Will. It sounds like that is exactly what your mother wants.
You can once your mother dies. Until then, she can change the will any way she wants. If the will has a "no contest" clause you may end up with nothing,
