What should my husband do if his sister will not let him have a copy of the family trust? 3 Answers as of October 12, 2015

It has been two years since their mother died. Not one thing has been done that the 5 siblings discussed since the mother died. The rest of the family lives in another state and he cannot go in person. He is a beneficiary.

Your husband should seek the services of a probate/trust litigation attorney ASAP in the geographical area where the trust is being administered, ie death of residence of mother. Suggest you seek the service of a lawyer via the Legal Match organization to refer you to an appropriate attorney. Good luck.

How does he know he's a beneficiary? If he is the law requires certain disclosures by the trustee.

Your husband almost certainly has a right to see the trust. His only remedy, however, is to petition the Court to order his sister to produce a copy. He may also wish to have his sister removed as trustee at the same time. An attorney is not required for this petition, but it likely will help immensely.
