Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
I would submit a bill or your work and the expenses you incurred here to the trustee.If the trustee denies the claim you will have to sue the trust and seek a judgment.You have rights to be a creditor against the trust.You have some great facts if the trustee denies the claim then you can sue here.
California allows small claims suits up to $10k you can file without a lawyer if necessary here.
You have right here to seek compensation for the work you performed during this time. I hope you will pursue this starting with demand letter to trustee and sue if you have too in order to get reimbursement.I am so sorry for the loss of your parent.
If you can positive rate it is much appreciated, thanks again.
