Your choice to hire an attorney is optional. However, there are some vital steps that you must take when completing your living trust. It is imperative that you sign it, have it notarized and transfer your property into the trust for it to become valid. Since the state of New York does not require that trust be registered - you should keep your document in a safe place such as a safe deposit box.
