Hi! My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!
Can you clarify the facts for me a bit? Was this $600/month obligation separate from the trust? Or, was the trustee obligated to make these payments as an obligation of the trust? If the latter, did the trust not have sufficient assets to pay the monthly payment? Thanks.
