It would cost $2500-3000 to set up a Trust. The attorney's office would handle all the paper work to properly title assets.

Gordon, my apologies. Maybe in the Southeast they're all greedy bastards.

I will note, though, that you get what you pay for. My attorney gave me the titling verbiage and I did the legwork of retitling my assets. Much better IMO than paying him $ridiculous/hour to do simple paperwork.

Our trust documents fill a large 3-ring binder. Lots of whereas's and wherefores. It was well less than $2500. CA has ridiculous probate rules as well, and the trust sidesteps them. We were told the IRA's must NOT go in the trust.

Try Legalzoom.com and see what's there. Well less than $2500.
