What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state? California
My husband's aunt recently passed away. His aunt never had children and my husband was like a son to her. Auntie has always stated that my husband will get a big chunk of her estate. We've never lived our life waiting for her to die, that's for sure, but there are some things we're not sure about.
Auntie had a revocable living trust and will, supposedly naming my mother in law as the executor/trustee. Okay, that's all fine and dandy. When my husband approached his mother about what was stated specifically as it relates to my husband, she said that was none of our business and she'll take care of her duties as Auntie has requested. We're very skeptical of this...
Bottom line...if my husband's name is mentioned in a will or a trust, shouldn't he be entitled to a copy of that document? If so, how do we get it and if not, how do we know that his mom is acting in a manner which is keeping with the trust and will specifications?
Thanks so much!
