If my parents had a trust made up years ago, my sister and I were co-executors; do I have the right to get a copy of it? 2 Answers as of July 27, 2017

My parents had a trust made up years ago. My sister and I were co-executors. My father has since passed away, and I am estranged from my mother. I no longer have a copy of the trust. I know the attorney's name that drew it up. I am wondering if it was changed and I may have to protect my rights.

The people who administer the operation of a Trust are called trustees, for a Will they are executors [name changes once court appoints them]. If you are trustees, you should have a copy of the Trust document. Contact the attorney to find out what instrument it really is and who is supposed to carry out the handling of any assets.
