Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
this question is for an iowa lawyer. i need to find out all of my legal rights as a beneficiary of a trust and, all my legal rights as a co-trustee of a trust. i'm familiar with the iowa administrative code but, it is so big i don't want to spend all day researching it. so, if you could either list my rights (both scenarios above) or tell me specifically in the iowa code where i can find a list of my rights i would appreciate it. thanks, j p.s. please do not answer in chat format.
i will click on and review your links but, will they pertain to iowa law. thanks, j
i don't know what you are referring to when you say "a link to the first source" but, send me the link anyway. so, when i go to an iowa lawyer with your info are they not going to say "but, this does not pertain to iowa law". thanks, j
i'm sorry but, i don't understand your link. it gives me a table of contents but, doesn't tell me how to look up subjects in the contents. could you please explain. thanks, j
well, i'm just getting very frustrated so, i'm going to back up. i want to know what my rights were/are as a co- trustee. i'll give you a very specific and actual situation. recently, i was a co-trustee of my parents trust. my brothers (beneficiaries) took stuff from parents house without my permission. what can i do. iv'e consulted and retained several attorneys but, they don't do anything. the co-trustee (my oldest brother) won't give me any records or accountings. what can i do.
you gave me a link that provided info about fiduciary responsibility but, i want a list of beneficiary rights. something that says " these are the rights of a beneficiary under iowa law."
