Hi. Hopefully you've arrived at this website because you want free living trust information. If so, that's great. You've come to the right place.
Over the years I've been amazed by the misinformation that is spread about living trusts (sometimes referred to as a revocable living trusts).
On one end of the spectrum are promoters who loudly proclaim that everyone desperately needs a living trust so their estate can avoid the perils of probate.
On the other end of the spectrum you will find others who say living trusts are worthless and their alleged benefits are "myth's."
If you have spent some time searching the web for information, you likely have become increasingly confused the more you read.
How can the "experts" disagree so profoundly about the most important aspects of living trusts?
The truth is they are all right and all wrong. There is some truth in what each of them has to say. But, the whole truth is more complicated. You can read about my personal experience, probating my grandmother's estate and settling her living trust at my probate story.
This site occupies a unique place on the web. As our name says, we provide free living trust information to the general public. We are dedicated to presenting the whole truth about living trusts.
The truth is that living trusts do offer substantial advantages to some people and no advantages (even disadvantages) to others. It just depends on your circumstances. [Although, as you'll see from the video above, I have become a bigger fan of living trusts after having used one myself.]
If you have a simple estate, with relatively few assets (such that your estate will qualify for a simplified probate procedure in your state) -- then you are unlikely to need a living trust.
However, if you are reading this, you are probably not in that category. You probably have a substantial estate, or other special need, that likely would benefit from a living trust.
The best way for you to find out whether a living trust will benefit you is for you to spend some time learning a bit about living trusts and what they can and can't do for you.
