Legal Question

Asked on: 6/24/13, 8:09 am

My husband has recently became the trustee of his deceased parents estate which consists of the family home. My husband has four living siblings. The will clearly states that the family home may be sold and the proceeds be distributed equally among the living siblings and the children of the deceased siblings. What efforts must my husband make to contact the children of the deceased siblings? The proceeds from the sale of the family home will be placed in a trust account at the bank. The funds will be distributed from the trust account. In the event my husband has difficulty contacting the children of his deceased siblings, how long must their share of the money remain in the trust account before it can be distributed to the remaining heirs?
