You can prepare you own living trust
I used this book to prepare a straightforward revocable living trust and simple backup wills for our estate plan. The process was a bit tedious, but probably not more so than working with an attorney to accomplish the same process. I did have a title company prepare the deed for my real estate transfer. This was my major cost - just over $300. The service included a title search and attorney preparation of the deed.
The inclusion with the book of a CD with forms in rich text format was a real time saver in preparing documents. I used MSWord. For those few out there still using a typewriter, there are hard copy forms that can be copied and used for working up drafts. You will then have to type a complete error free document. Instructions for this and for the use of the CD are given and easy to follow.
You will find the many examples and alternative strategies in the book useful in making planning decisions. The book also includes warnings when your situation is complex to go with an attorney to avoid problems. NOLO's website provides information on attorneys and other comprehensive legal information.
