Estate Planning and Probate Section – “Dad died, Mom is sick, and I am the Trustee – Now What?”
Thursday, May 12, 2022
It is common to hear the following story in our practice – Mom and dad have been married for decades. Mom’s memory has been getting a lot worse over the years, but I didn’t know how bad things were until Dad died. Dad did everything for her. Mom doesn’t know any of the accounts, passwords, or where the estate documents were. Dad did his best, but he had a lot on his hands caring for Mom. Now I am left as Trustee of their Revocable Trust and trying to take over Mom’s care. She can’t even be left alone for a few hours. What do I do?
Please join the Estate Planning and Probate Section on Thursday, May 12, 2022 where the speaker Elijah Keyes will cover the basic steps to administer a joint revocable trust after the first spouse’s death and key steps to protect the adult child trustee as she takes over without the help of the surviving parent.
Elijah Keyes is a Certified Specialist in Estate Planning, Trust and Probate law. He has more than 10 years experience in estate planning and trust work. With an office in Milpitas, he serves clients through the San Francisco Bay Area. Mr. Keyes graduated from Golden Gate University School of Law.
