She wasn't appointed by a court or anything. My wife just wanted to make sure all of the proper filings are done and money distributed by a neutral third party so nobody can complain. All assets were in the trust and there were no bills. The only income was Social Security and the only assets at the end was the proceeds from the sale of her home. She shouldn't owe any taxes since the gain on the house was < $250K.
Are you thinking that we don't need the attorney?
