We have a simple family trust written in Arizona. We now live in Georgia. Is our trust a contract with the federal government or do we need to have it executed in Georgia?

Your trust is definitely not a contract with the federal government. You need to see a Georgia lawyer to find out whether you need to do anything new.

Since state laws vary, you should have your trust reviewed by an estate planning attorney in your new state. Perhaps a few small amendments may be necessary, but you won't have to write a whole new trust, and you won't have to re-fund your present trust. If your trust has already applied for a tax ID, that number will not be changed.

The costs involved should not be very high. Even if you had remained in the same state, and changed attorneys, your new lawyer might have suggested a few changes.
