We have been estranged for many years, the trust was made in 2004, at which time he advised each child would get 1/6 after the death of his wife. She is still living, but I would like to know if I am still a named beneficiary in the trust.
Since a revocable trust is private and can be amended at any time while the grantor of the trust is living, there isn't any way to find out if you are a beneficiary other than asking your father. If he hasn't amended his trust to remove you as a beneficiary, raising the issue might be the catalyst to cause him to make the change, so you may be better off letting sleeping dogs lie.
