Legal Question

Asked on: 1/26/12, 12:41 pm

My daughter is the beneficiary of a testamentary trust, where her trust gets a set amount of money from the estate. I have been told I will not be given any knowledge of the proceedings or of the will itself because my daughter is not a beneficiary of the will. She is 6, by the way, and I am her legal guardian, so I represent her in these matters. I was told the trust is the beneficiary of the will, so I am not entitled to notices of proceedings or a copy of the will. Is what I'm being told correct? I would think she was a beneficiary of the will, even if what she inherits is in trust. The will has not been probated yet, or I would just get the information from Probate Court. However, I don't like the fact that no one will tell me anything.
