Who Contacts the Survivors?
Q - My father died and I believe he had a trust. Does the attorney contact me to discuss my dad's last requests? I don't have the attorney's information and how does the attorney know that he is deceased? A - Unless the attorney was a friend or the Trustee for your dad, its unlikely he would know that your father passed. So first, you need to start checking around the house for the trust manual. Did your dad have a safety-deposit box? Once you have located the manual, you can determine who is the Successor Trustee and who will carry out the provisions of your dad's trust. If someone else has been named Successor Trustee, you will need to get in contact with that person to ensure they carry out the orders of the trust.
