Beneficiary Rights

Many persons do not understand their rights when it comes to inheritance and there are many rumors and urban legends which keep beneficiaries from exercising their rights.

If you are in California, and you are a beneficiary or related to the decedent to the 2nd degree you have a right to have a copy of the entirety of the decedent's trust and will. Failure to provide said copies by the executor / trustee is breach of their fiduciary duties.

Unfortunately, beneficiaries and executors alike often get confused with the no-contest and disinheritance laws when beneficiaries try to exercise their rights to obtain information.

If this is becoming a problem for you, give us a call.
