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.

Rule Your Retirement Home Fool

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