The trust is in Illinois. Can you give me a link to Illinois law
What have you tried so far?: Talking to the trust lawyer & the CPA that is suppose to pay all last bills and has finished the 2012 taxes for the estate. They keep giving us the run around and not telling the truth.
This part of an earlier question I was hoping to get an answer to. Are they in anyway legally culpable to my family?
He is making distributions. The CPA , the trust lawyer nor my brother has made any voluntary attempt at providing up-to-date information. Every piece of information, which has been very little, has had to be obtained by one of us at great effort. They have never volunteered any information regarding the trust. We are in the dark and don't know how to proceed.
I have never received any communication from brother, so we are in the dark.
