Barrister, I submitted a Pension Beneficiary form listing

Hi Barrister, I submitted a Pension Beneficiary form listing "The ***** ***** Selman Revocable Living Trust". They are insisting I submit a copy of the trust. I thought placing the name of the trust was enough. It's not that big of a deal, but I wanted my privacy etc. Is there a law I can quote to help me not submit the form? What can I do to not submit the copy?

I live in a home that is in my name. My daughter and her

I live in a home that is in my name. My daughter and her family also live there. They pay me 60% of the rent each month and have been for 9 years and we expect it ti continue. My intention is when the house is sold they will get 60% of the proceeds. If I have passed, I want them to be able to live here until they sell; they would get their 60% and the remaining 40% would be split among this daughter and 2 other children. Do I put this in my will, or do a need something else to protect their rights?

Facts: A revocable Living Trust was set up in California.

Facts:A revocable Living Trust was set up in California. According to the terms of the Trust, it becomes irrevocable upon the death of the Settlor (person setting up the Trust).The Settlor did not make a Will.After his death, the Superior Court of California entered an Order giving instructions to distribute the Trust assets.Questions:1. Under the above circumstances, does California law treat the Trust as a Will?2. If so, is the same based on a statute, or case law, or both.3. I need statutory authority to treat the Trust as a Will and supporting case law (2 cases).Thank you.

Story short, family revocable living trust mom has passed

long story short, family revocable living trust mom has passed that leaves my 87 year old father that now has jaw cancer and is terminal prognoses is to advanced to treat and probably won't make it thru the Christmas holiday. decided he wanted to move to Cottonwood Arizona my brother and his new girl friend move there with him this is in early June this year my brother passes away in October just passed at age 57 of liver failure. The girl friend is still living with my dad. My aunt calls me to tell me that my dad has cancer and probably won't last thru the holidays. My uncle lives in Cottonwood a couple blocks away so I call him and ask if I should come out there right away...he says your dad is awfully pissed off at you....hmmm so he said call me back at 5 this afternoon because I'm taking your dad to the doctor today. I said ok....call him at 5 and he said no you will be arrested if you do am I'm thinking hmmm where did that come from so the call ended with me saying ok. 20 minutes later I get a call from this gal she says are you Dennis I say yes she says this is your brother Gary's fiancée and I said you do know he passed away she said yes I was with him and now I'm taking care of your father and he is very private and we have a restraining order on you. I said hmm I would know if you did so she went on to say that they called the sheriff's office and gave them my name. now mind you I have never met this person nor ever talked to her before. so now I'm thing what the hell is going on out there and this took place last Friday. so Saturday afternoon me and my wife drive out to AZ from Northern California come Monday morning I call the sheriff's office and request a civil stand by so we meet the deputy a couple blocks from the house to go over the living trust. I am the successor trustee in my mom and dads revocable living trust so I'm trying to do what the trust is saying my job is. so the deputy clears is with his boss and he ran a check on the girl friend Margie Cone low and behold there is a quit claim deed for the property in AZ that belong to the trust it was quit claimed out of the trust on November 15th of this year and it's in my dads and Margie Cone's name as joint owners and the rights of survivorship.....so that's why I got a call from her trying to keep me from finding out about that before he passes away. Tried to find out if he actually did this or not I don't know the document signature doesn't match other signatures of his so I'm wondering maybe she forged it. I worked with my dad for over 12 years at the same shop before he retired several years ago and I've watched him sign his time card every week that whole time more or less so I would know his signature if anybody would. I heard thru the grapevine after I started asking question about her to different people and found out that she is addicted to pain pills. So we do go to the house and the deputy knocks and knocks on the door but no answer so we left and went to the county recorders office and got a copy of the quit claim deed.
