The short answer is “No” you don’t need an attorney and “Yes” you can create your own trusts; however, many factors must be considered.
1st – Trusts are legal documents and they control and convey the ownership (Title) of real or personal property. Trusts can tremendously affect your taxes and net worth. Any time you consider transfer of a property you should consider the legal ramifications and may want to consult an attorney or CPA, but you want to make sure they are well versed in Trusts and the Law associated with them.
2nd – Many states do not require attorneys to have any education in trust law. Since most trust law is part of English Common Law it was originally part of our constitution. Many of the rulings on trust law have been in a few states like Illinois and Massachusetts. Other states are beginning to model these laws but the process is slow to come. Make sure your attorney understands trust law and the benefits of using trusts.
3rd – It may be less expensive to purchase or create your own documents and simply have them reviewed by an attorney. If you pay an attorney to create documents from scratch, you will pay far more than for them to review documents you have created. Trust documents are available through many sources, including our website.
4th – Consider using our website to create you trust documents and then having them reviewed by an attorney. Our documents are simple and easy to understand. Our auto-fill feature will be operational in a few weeks and you can use the site to create, manage, retrieve, print or email your trust documents.
5th – Whether you use our site, find the documents someone else or have them created by an attorney, please consider using trusts to plan your estate, protect your assets and maintain your privacy.
