You should have a received a notice within 60 days of the date of death of the grantor (Probate Code Section 16061.7(f). You can also request the trust and information about you beneficiary interest under Probate Code Section 16061.


It depends on what you are specifically referring to. If you are trying to determine the time-line for what action should be taken under the trust, you need to review the trust document itself. You can use the Avvo find a lawyer tool to locate a trust attorney near you for assistance.

If you are one of the beneficiaries you should have received a notice from the trustee within 60 days of the date of the grantor's death that informs you that you can obtain a copy of the trust. It would be a good idea to find an estate attorney to help you with making sure you aren't being taken advantage of.
