California lawyer only please 2nd opinion Cotrustee duties
California lawyer only please2nd opinionCotrustee duties and rightsI and my two brothers are cotrustees for our 95 year old father, deemed incapacitated by the court.My brothers took my father's money out of the Revocable Trust bank account and opened a new bank account without my name on it! ( first bank would not do it; younger brother's credit union did.) They will not let me see any statements or see any monies going in and out of the account, which is my duty as Cotrustee to keep account of.There is a clause in my father's Living Trust which states all decisions regarding my father must be discussed by all Trustees, and if a unanimous decision cannot be reached, then a 2/3 majority will prevail.Does this apply to this bank account, and them not giving me access to account information. Shouldn't my name be on the account? Don't I also have rights to information as a beneficiary?There is a clause in
My father passed away last November 2015. He had left a will
Hi,My father passed away last November 2015. He had left a will for his 6 children and he had a substantial amount. My sister who is executor of the will, made changes last year and I'm concerned she made alterations that would affect my inheritance. We are not in the best of terms and my brother made a statement " YOU do not want to be on her bad side".As of last week, she stated that there is still unfinished business and would take awhile and the inheritance would not be substantial. I am concerned because she just returned with her children to Italy and her children are not well off.Is there a way to look at the original will and/or request the new one? Unfortunately, I had been out of work and needed the inheritance to help with my family.Thank you
Ray, I just wanted to make sure I was doing the statement
Hi Ray,I just wanted to make sure I was doing the statement of facts correctly.Also, on the exhibits, do they get cited on the points relied on or statement of facts? On the document the opposing party submitted STA0025 it stands for St. Anthony's hospital but I am surprised they submitted that page because the Dr. Burns they are quoting said my sister was alert, however on the same page it lists Marc Kramer states we are estranged and then it has her advanced directive.Thank you..
I'm a 60-year-old editor with some serious health problems.
I'm a 60-year-old editor with some serious health problems. I'm concerned about not having a living will or advance directive. I'm divorced with no children, and no next of kin.I'm also concerned that if anybody in my estranged birth family heard that I was too ill to take care of myself, or if I died, he or she might attempt to take control of my property and bank accounts. My birth family consists of very real criminals. I haven't seen any of them for almost 20 years because they're dangerous. They seriously injured me in the past more than once.If I were to die suddenly without a will, what would happen to my property and bank accounts? What if I were unconscious for an extended period of time? I don't have any close normal relatives, or close friends.

My Stepmom has made a decision to not honor my fathers final
My Stepmom has made a decision to not honor my fathers final wishes. His funeral etc. She is telling us, his children it's her decision and she does not have discuss anything with us. We did just find out that she has a POA. Not sure why she felt she needed to do that. My father is not able to express anything any longer. He will be gone very soon. There is no will. Is there anything we as his children can do?
