How to get a Living Trust without expensive attorney fees??
Anyone with insight on how to set up a legal Living Trust please advise.
Here's the scenario:
Mom is getting on in age, single, owns her manufactured home, retired (lives on SS income), enter hint of health problems.
I'm her only living child, don't want to go through probate if anything happens. (she brought this up!)
Was going to put house in my name except the tax base would go up and increase my taxable income!
Car is in both of our names.
We picked up a CD from Staples that gives one the ability to print forms, but we took it back thinking they wouldn't hold up legally if something were to happen and if we didn't fill it out correctly. We don't want to be ignorant, but don't have the money to go through an attorney as we were told they charge approx. $800 and up.
Thanks to anyone with firsthand knowledge of this, it's very much appreciated!!!
Any other helpful hints would also be welcomed!
(should I also get a Living Trust for my family too?)
Have a blessed day!
