Legal Answers
44 Questions Answered

Q. My mother died Without a will and a joint account with my brother. He refuses to probate the estate. What are my options
A: you should consult with a lawyer familiar with estates on this. the answer is "it depends" if the only asset mother owned was the joint account with your brother there is a good chance he is correct. but there are other factors which could be involved which could change that answer
Q. Grantor exercised Power of Appointment giving daughter house. Can trustee-brother sell house and place back in trust?
A: there are so many unanswered questions here. Would have to review documents, relationship between the parties, timing and capacity of the Grantor. First step would be to meet with an attorney to start to review all of the above
Q. Can a beneficiary request a copy of the family trust from the lawyer while the grantor is still alive? In Pennsylvania?
A: like so many legal questions "it depends". The questions are what type of trust is it (revocable or irrevocable), is the beneficiary a lifetime beneficiary, and is the beneficiary a vested beneficiary or a contingent beneficiary. You will have to start with the family lawyer and if he or she denies your request ask them why.
