Thank you for using JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Did the trust lend you money or did she personally? What trust would this be?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She just wrotee a personal check .
Expert:  ScottyMacEsq replied 1 year ago.

So what trust are you asking if you have to pay back? Did she have a trust in place, or was one set up upon her death?

Expert:  ScottyMacEsq replied 1 year ago.

You asked "do I have to pay the trust back". A trust is a separate legal entity, so I'm wondering why you're asking that. Is there a trust? Is the trust asking you to pay it back? Basically, I'm asking why you're bringing up the trust at all...
