What does the trust say about any surviving spouse?
I really dont know ? How can I find out ? As far as I know the trust fund was only for
the children of John Humpal. And now that my husband is gone I think the money goes to the surviving children . Is that usually the norm? I will try to find out from my brother inlaw, but Im sure he will ignore me and tell me I am not entitled to anything. I will continue in afew days as Im going out of town for afew days . I will check back with you on weds. Thank you Cinda
Normally, a trust for the children will go to the other children if one dies without any children. Rarely is there any provision for a spouse? If there are children then the children may get the deceased child's share.
