My friend has asked me to be trustee of his father's will. The lawyer is asking me to pay fees for changes documents and a MOU. Is the normal? I live in California.

Assuming his father is still alive and you aren't being called to duty now I am not sure why there would be a charge to you. That seems unusual to me. If you did not hire the attorney (in writing or orally if under $1,000) then I would probably not pay. Or I would at least ask for clarification on why you are being charged. Good luck. -John Palley
