Is the estate about property in New Zealand? The law about trusts has changed so that beneficiaries are entitled to more information about a trust. When you talk to the trustees you can cite the new act to get more info

Do not worry about the phone call, the system asks this question. Feel free to continue with the messages, although sometimes a phone call can be useful. It is an extra cost of course

The law is usually similar in Queensland but not the same as here. You should find out the solicitors handling the estate and ask for a copy of the will and any trust deeds. Do you think your father actually had anything in his estate? sometimes it can be used for their care if they need residential rest home care
