My initial question is where do I find information from the IRS that discusses how assets in an Irrevocable Trust are distributed and what the restrictions are.

As has been pointed out, this is not a tax question and the IRS has nothing to do with how the assets are distributed.

I'd suggest that your mother take the trust documents to another attorney for another opinion. I'd also suggest that you read the trust documents to see what they say because all distributions from a trust are governed by whatever terms are included in the trust.

What your mother wants to do is not unusual, but you need to see what the trust documents say around distributions.
