My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
A trust is private information known only to the trustee, eventually the trust beneficiaries, and perhaps the attorney who drew it up, and is NOT public record. When the death of the grantor occurs, normally the trustee begins assuming his responsibilities and in most states, is supposed to notify the beneficiaries by mail that he has assumed those responsibilities. If you are a beneficiary of the trust, you can request a copy of the original trust document and an accounting/financial statement for each year the trust has been in existence. If the grantor is still living then you will not have access to any details of the trust until the death of the grantor. If there is no trustee and the grantor is dead then you will need to look for the attorney that drafted it or search possible financial institutions for possible names for the trust.
