Living Trusts FAQs

Do I need an attorney to form a living trust?

No. You don't need an attorney to form a living trust. You can prepare the legal paperwork and file it yourself, or use an online legal document service like LegalZoom. However, if you have questions you can't resolve on your own, if your estate will face a significant tax burden, or if you think your spouse or children will challenge your trust, you should consult with a licensed attorney.
