Mark and Judy had been married for 47 years when Mark died unexpectantly. Thankfully, Judy found a Grief Share class at Rock Point Church to help her through this difficult time. Mark always handled the family’s finances and told Judy not to worry because they had a trust so everything would be taken care of. Her son Ryan read the trust and told her some of the assets needed to be split into an “A” and “B” trust. Judy learned their only car and one savings account were only titled in Mark’s name, and their bank accounts were not titled in the name of the trust. The banker told Judy she had to open a probate to access the money in the savings account.
