My Uncle past away a year and a half ago. I have requested a copy of the trust from his trustee, and the trustee’s attorney several times.
I have retained an attorney myself, still no response. I haven’t received any information. What are my rights? What can I do?
ATTORNEY ANSWER BY MARGARET L. CROSS:
Your only option at this point is to file suit with the probate court to demand a copy of the trust. All beneficiaries have rights to see the provisions of the trust which relate to themselves.
