Do You Need a Lawyer in the Special Needs Trust Beneficiary’s State?
I am the trustee of my sister’s special needs trust. My sister lives in California. Is it necessary to have a special needs lawyer in California for administering trust related documents such as yearly expense reports etc?
Yes, it makes sense at least to consult with a California special needs attorney because we don’t know what we don’t know. I’m not sure what reporting requirements there may be for whatever programs your sister is on in California, a practitioner should be able to advise you.
