Attorney Pennell's answer is directly on point. The issue is her mental competence and whether she has or can transfer an asset in her condition. If she does NOT have a Durable Power of Attorney giving someone the power to act on her behalf, then I definitely agree that a Conservatorship is called for.See question
What is the primary function or purpose of putting assets into a trust while living? Will the trust protect the assets from creditors?
An irrevocable Asset Protection Trust is typically used to provide creditor protection BEFORE there is a dispute which may lead to a lawsuit. A revocable Living Trust can provide protection from Probate and Conservatorship. Hope this helps.See question

My condolences on the passing of your sister. Typically, many Estate Planning attorneys prepare what's called an Affidavit of Trust which lays the grantor's name (your sister) then the names of the Trustee and any Successor Trustee. It is typically about 2 pages long and has a portion of the Trust attached to it which is called 'Powers of the Trustee'. If you are named as the Successor Trustee upon your sister's passing and also the Executor of her Pour-Over Will then you can take the Affidavit to the bank and allow them to make a copy for their files. I hope this helps you.See question
My moms past away and left the property to all the sibling.
My condolences on the loss of your Mom. First - if the property is owned in the name of her Trust, then the Succesor Trustee may convey it outside of probate to the beneficiaries of the Trust. If she did NOT own it in a Trust, then it will need to pass via a Probate Court order in accodance with the laws of the state where she was domiciled at the time of her death. See Avvo.com under 'Find-a-Lawyer' then enter "Probate" and the city & state. Good Luck.See question
My mom was receiving my dads pension before she died , can I get my dads pension now
It's likely that your Dad named your Mom specifically as the Beneficiary of his Pension. Normally pensions will terminate at death unless a spouse is named - and then that spouse can receive (usually) some percenetage of the pension for the spouse's lifetime - after which it terminates. Contact the company which gave your Dad the pension and talk to the Benefits department. Good Luck.See question
