Question Details:What rights do I have regarding access especially if sibling has disappeared. They are trust for my neice and nephew and I have no relationship. So the funds are just sitting and I am in a major health crisis. Where do I stand. Bottomline, I am in medical need and they are my immediate family. As conservator where do I stand?
If you are a conservator or trustee concerning a trust, what you can do with the accounts is determined from the documentation that created the situation that you are now handling. As such, I suggest that you carefully read the trust document or conservatorship paper work in that such documents will set forth what you can do.
If not, then you need to petition the court to allow you to move the accounts that you are handling for family members to another financial planner. I suggest that you consult with a Wills and trust attorney about your situation and bring all paper work concerning the trust or conservatorship with you to the consultation.
