Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
How can I prove that my uncle had in his will what he told me? The will should have been probated and an estate opened in the County of residence shortly after your uncle's death. Trusts are different. They are generally not recorded in public records, nor are they subject to probate court administration after the death of the main trust beneficiary. In your case that was apparently Flo Mizel. That is the reason that you cannot find it. Unless you know who the trustee was, there is no way for you to find out anything about it. The only thing you can do is request, or even sue for an accounting from your cousin, who was the executor of your uncle's estate. He may know about the Mizel Trust. If your uncle died in 2005, and flow died before him I presume, then you're going to have a very difficult time obtaining any kind of information at this late date. I suggest that you employ a probate attorney in Tulsa, if you haven't done so already.
