Depends on what type of living trust it is. The assets in aÊrevocable living trustÊareÊnotÊprotected from lawsuits, but the ones in an irrevocable living trust are. The only drawback with an irrevocable living trust is that the creator or owner will not be able to add or remove any assets in the trust during the entire validity period.

Pour-Over Will?

Get StartedA Pour-Over Will is a specialized will that is used as a supplementary document to the Living Trust or Joint Living Trust. Its primary function is to "Pour Over" the Will writer's remaining assets (at the Will writer's death) into the Will writer's Living Trust or Joint Living Trust. Often a Living Trust is established to avoid "probate" of a will, but if any assets were not transferred into the trust �by design or by inadvertence, a pour-over will serves as a safety net to convey those assets into the Living Trust so that they can be distributed with the Will writer's other assets. Note: If a Joint Living Trust has been created, each joint Grantor should prepare a Pour-Over Will.A Pour-Over Will includes a standard provision that provides for an Executor (Personal Representative in some states). It also includes an optional provision to select a Guardian, if the Will writer has minor children.Instead of the usual provisions that provide for the distribution of specific bequests, tangible personal property, and the residuary estate, the Pour-Over Will simply distributes the Will writer's remaining assets to his or her Living Trust. The Living Trust then distributes that property, plus the Trust assets, in accordance with the distribution provisions (specific bequests, etc.) of the Living Trust.The Pour-Over Will should be signed with the same formalities as any other Will.

Living Trust Revocation?

Get StartedThe Living Trust Revocation is a document used to revoke a living trust or joint living trust. The Revocation can be used to either dismantle the entire plan of using a revocable living trust or to revoke the "old" living trust in preparation for preparing and signing a "new" living trust. However, if a new living trust will be created, and if it will have the same number of grantors as the revoked living trust, consider amending and restating the existing living trust instead of revoking it. If the living trust is merely restated and not revoked/replaced, the assets already transferred to the living trust will remain in the living trust, avoiding the need to transfer each of them. (See this program's Living Trust or Joint Living Trust documents and select the option to "Amend" the Trust.)

Bill of Transfer for Living Trust?

Get StartedThe bill of transfer is used to transfer personal property to a living trust or joint living trust. In addition to creating and signing a living trust document, assets must be transferred into the trust. A living trust only owns the assets that are actually transferred into the trust. Any assets that remain titled in the name of the grantor will be subject to potential probate administration at the death of the grantor. Assets should be transferred from the grantor to the trust to achieve the result that the property is then legally owned by the trust. Assets can be transferred to the trust both at the time of the creation of the trust and also at later times. Separate transfer documents, such as this bill of transfer, must be used for this purpose because the trust document itself does not contain any language of conveyance or any list of assets. Note: This document cannot be used to transfer real estate or other property which has a title document, such as a vehicle.If the asset consists of a category of items, especially those that may change regularly, for example household goods and personal effects, continuous transfers would be impractical, so the initial transfer should convey that category of assets, "whether now owned or later acquired."
