Hello! My inquiry is connected with a will and trust. We lost my mother by marriage three years prior to malignant growth. She was the one that dealt with ALL the funds for my parents in law. My father by marriage never composed a check and had no clue about where their cash was. In the wake of having an uncle die without setting up any will for his little girls, I asked her before she passed on the off chance that she had everything for the day when we would have to deal with the bequest. She immovably said that "all that you want is in the lockbox". Nonetheless, she was evident that my significant other was the agent and the house was in a trust.
Get out ahead several years and my father by marriage isn't progressing admirably. In these most recent few years, he has gotten to that lockbox and the main thing left is an exceptionally old will from 1984 that names his natural little girl as agent (my better half was from an earlier marriage of his mom's yet was taken on by my father by marriage, thinking back to the 60's).
We've contemplated reaching their legal advisor to decide whether there is a more current will and trust, yet he passed on his training to turn into an adjudicator in our district around 10 years prior and has since died.
My inquiry is twofold.....is a legal counselor obliged in any capacity to keep his records anyplace would it be advisable for him to close the training? Or on the other hand would every one of his records be able to have been destroyed when he died? Could a trust be reported with the state or region?
