A: Who draftees your trust? Was the property transferred to the trust? How was it funded? Your lawyer should walk you step by step through the next steps it’s really strange that you are asking these questions if you have a lawyer and if you don’t how did you fund the trust? As without funding trust is useless.

Please call my office 718-333-2394 after 9 am and we can explain more. Trust is not a will it doesn’t get filed in court so something is off in this scenario
