Each subscription includes one copy of the Client's Guide to Administering the California Trust. When a surviving spouse is called upon to administer a trust, generally, she has no training in this capacity, but has many questions. The Client's Guide to Administering the California Trust explains, in layman's language, the responsibilities and requirements of acting as a noninstitutional trustee. You can help your clients to be better-educated trustees by providing a copy of this pamphlet each time you begin a trust administration. Additional copies may be purchased separately.
The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
