Property left in a living trust bypasses lengthy and expensive probate court proceedings and goes directly to the person it's left to, quickly and easily. Make Your Own Living Trust clearly explains: how a living trust workshow to create a trusthow to transfer property to a trusthow to amend or revoke a trust at any time. The bestseller also provides all the forms and instructions necessary to create a basic living trust, a marital life estate trust (AB trust) and a backup will. Good in all states except Louisiana.

Good solid information that can save you thousands or even millions of dollars!
I have always been interested in Living Trust, and I have actually spent time to attend a few Living Trust seminars
“Make Your Own Living Trust” has provided more information than all the Living Trust seminars I have attended. For most people, it has all the information you need to know to make your own living trust, such as overview, FAQ, human realities, types of living trusts (Individual Trusts, Basic Shared Living Trusts, and Tax-Saving AB Trusts), choosing and changing trustee, choosing and changing beneficiaries, property left to minor children or young adults, preparing your living trust document, transferring property to your living trust, copying, storing and registering your trust document, using a backup will, etc.
This book provides very useful information. For example, it tells you how you can set up a Tax-Saving AB Trust and pass up to 10 million dollars tax free to your children beyond the special years of 2011 and 2012.
“Make Your Own Living Trust” also comes with a very useful CD Rom that contains the window and Mac version of the forms you need to file for the living trust.
A simple Living Trust cost around $1,000 and up. With this book, you can make your own living trust easily.
“Make Your Own Living Trust” is an excellent book well worthy of the purchasing price and can save you thousands or even millions of dollars.
