Not sure if I should be asking an estate lawyer or real
Not sure if I should be asking an estate lawyer or real estate lawyer this question.Here is the scenario: my mother created a revocable living trust in 2001 (The trust is in her name. I believe she was the trustor and my aunt was named the trustee in the event of her death. The main purpose was to delegate my aunt with the task of dividing her property in the event of her death). The deed of her house was listed under her trust name.We just closed on that house yesterday. Our representative at the title company called my mother and said the account in which the funds were to be wired into needed to be in the name of the trust (since the deed was in the trust name).The problem is, my mother can't find the paperwork for the trust and doesn't remember what lawyer helped her draft this up. She never set up a bank account in the trust name, and our bank says it requires the trust paperwork in order to do so.What are our options? Our money is sitting in escrow until we can figure out how to get an account set up in the trusts name. I would think that since she created this trust there has got to be a way for her to access her money.Please let me know if more info is needed. Thank you.

I am in California. My father is leaving me a substantial estate. His fear is that my husband could sue me for spousal support and I would have to pay him from my inheritance. I don't work and that would be the only money I would have.
