I received a letter from my dad's attorney which states "To the beneficiaries of the above-referenced Trust and to each heir of [mother's name]." This arrived five weeks after my mother had died. Six months after that, I was verbally advised I was disinherited and that BOTH my mother and father disinherited me. I don't dispute being disinherited (my father and I are bitterly estranged). What I am disputing is if I was disinherited before or after my mom's death. Hence my question: if I was disinherited before my mom's death, would I still receive this notification letter weeks after she died? I would think that had I been disinherited at that time, I would not be notified of anything because I'm not inheriting anything. Does receiving this letter mean my mom didn't disinherit me?Is he required even if I was disinherited? His attorney's letter stated I could get a copy of the trust but didn't proactively send me a copy. My parents both reside in California. I am hesitant to contact my father's attorney to demand a copy because he will likely notify my father that I made a request. For personal reasons, I don't want my father to know of anything I do for personal reasons. Just trying to determine if this communication could lead me to infer that the disinheritance was executed AFTER my mom's death.
