This completely up-to-date guide explains the latest strategies for using a living trust to create a flexible estate plan.

Readers will learn strategies for reducing probate costs, creating flexible estate plans, and planning for disability. This valuable planning tool will make its readers more informed participants in the estate-planning process, pointing out the dangers of the “do-it-yourself” guides and reducing the risks involved in establishing a living trust.
