If you have a Trust that doesnt have the pages initialed by

If you have a Trust that doesn't have the pages initialed by the deceased can you ask the attorney who no longer represents the parties to confirm the document is the same as they atested to? Do they have to answer you?
Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma. The lawyer cannot alter the document or speak for the creator of the trust. Normally all of the pages do not need to be initialed as long as the document is executed and signed. In the event of a trust challenge or issues from the court, the lawyer who may have witnessed execution can be required to confirm what happened.

What does executed mean? The Trust has never been filed. AZ law doesn't require it to be filed.

If it was signed on the last page, that is sufficient. Initializing every page is often done but not absolutely required.
