Unless your cousin was historically very close to your father, this sounds like classic elder abuse. You need to go to court NOW and get an emergency temporary conservatorship and an elder abuse restraining order. If your father has capacity, he can change his documents back. If not, you will need to go to court again after he passes to have the trust amendments declared void.
