Legal Answers
Q. My dad named me on his living trust. Lawyer says I'm getting nothing. Can I be named not to get anything
A: Yes that is entirely possible. It could be because the estate is insolvent. Or you might have been intentionally disinherited.
Q. In an A/B trust, can the surviving spouse draw from the principal balance of the Bypass Trust?
A: It is not possible to answer your question without reading the trust. They are not all the same. You should schedule a consultation with a trust administration attorney.
Q. My mother is 93 and suffers from dementia.i'm 75 and six (6) years ago I completed a 30 plus year prison sentence.
A: A fiduciary litigation attorney can help you attempt to get someone else appointed as conservator for your mother, and the conservator can sue your sister to get stolen money and assets back.
