Thank you for giving me a start to locating the Trust. However, I am not sure how to go about finding out who her lawyer was, accountant, banking, etc.
Her son has become distant and the family doesn't know what to do. We do not know if her property taxes were being paid either. He (son) has a drug problem and had embezzled money from her account. A couple of weeks before her sudden death, she told me that she had agreed to file charges against him with the bank. They were to replace the funds he stole. He was also collecting her rent funds from the properties that she owed and never deposited the money into her account.....he took her car, etc.
I did remember her saying that he had been arrested last year before her death, on drug charges....
Where can we go from here to obtain some of the property/items that she had promised us and protect her assets from him if indeed she removed him from inheriting most of her estate.
