Legal Answers
115 Questions Answered
Q. The trustee of my fathers’ estate will not give me an accounting of the estate or release any funds. It has been 14
A: If the Trustee ( Execeutor?) is not sharing information with you, you may need to engage your own attorney for Beneficiary Representation to obtain the accounting and release of funds (if that is appropriate). Much may depend on whether your father had a Trust, and this is a Trust Admininstration, or if there is an Estate, and this is an Estate Administration/Probate. If you received a copy of a Will you may be able to determine if you are to receive Estate assets outright of if they are going to a Trust for your benefit. Also, if there is a Will you can either go online in some PA counties and check the Estate records in the County Register of Wills website, or is not available on line you can go to the County courthouse and get copies of the Estate records (copy of Will, copy of PA Inheritance Tax Return, Estate Inventory). If it is a Trust Administration you will need to hire your own attorney if the Trustee is not cooperating with you.
Q. What process is required to give Personal Rep authorization to windup a PA LLC where the sole member has died?
A: The Personal Rep has the authority to wrap up the LLC as you describe it. There is a Dissolution process in PA for ending an LLC, which includes collecting all revenues and accounts receivable, paying all costs and debts of the business, getting tax clearances from the Department of Revenue, and then filing appropriate Dissolution paperwork with the PA Department of State
Q. Special Needs Trusts
A: a Special Needs Trust can be created either in a Will, in which case it is not funded until the death of the Grantor, or can be created during the lifetime of the Grantor, in which case it is usually funded (at least partially) when created, and additional funds can be added during the lifetime of the Grantor and/or at the death of the Grantor. However, you are also correct that the Trust can be rendered useless if assets that have beneficiary designations are not correctly designated since the assets will never be funded into the Trust if the beneficiaries do not include the Trust
