Revocable Living Trust is the document that controls your assets. If you hold your property in a living trust, your survivors won’t have to go through probate court, a time-consuming and expensive process. This is the type of an agreement that provides flexibility and income to the living grantor. He/she or a couple is able to adjust the provisions of the trust and earn income, all the while knowing that the estate will be transferred upon death. When one of the spouses dies, this trust becomes irrevocable.
Depending on the type of the assets that you have, you may not need Revocable Living Trust. Ask me for other ways how you can avoid probate and create sufficient asset protection without transferring the assets to trust.
Disclaimer: Legal Document Preparers do not provide legal advice.
The most cherished moment while working with my clients is feeling that I was able to develop a personal bond that goes deeper than preparing their legal documents. Every time when I did not feel that was accomplished, I was nothing more that the typist or another notary, regardless of the amount of time and efforts that I had invested in their case. I’ve serviced a large pool of clients, so the depth of my involvement naturally varied. After all, I cannot have the same approach with a client that is preparing for the trial as with the happily married couple who is getting ready to take their vacation and preparing a contract for their pet’s day care needs.
My clients can rest assured that I invest many hours to understand their case and provide all the options available. I don’t ever assume that I have the answers in advance. I work with facts and guide my clients through the process one step at the time. It’s easy to get lost in court administration and litigation process with judicial system that we currently have. Do we know what court to go to? How do we look up the case?
Most of the courts have friendly websites and self service centers that are available to general public. Many of online legal documents software are available to general public, some of which I can personally recommend. While this is all true, my mission is to assist with how fast and confident my clients can help themselves by using the legal information already available to them. I help them build confidence and make sure that they can succeed with their desired outcome. My initial evaluation interview is always free, as well as my social medial groups and chats. Not all cases can be prepared online and in many instances we will need to meet in person. The same is true when it comes to online forms. Let’s make certain that we understand the meaning of the legalese in simple and plain English. I am here to help.
My main goal is to make my clients comfortable when using my services. I promised myself not to become a typical document preparer. Your business is personal to me, because it is important to you. This is why I have a flexible work hours and work arrangements. Times of cubicles and one office location are long gone.
My office is now mobile. I moved my office to virtual environment, not to just save money, but to also make it easier to accommodate various needs that my clients may have. Some of my clients are handicapped and cannot leave home. Others would have a long commute. Lastly, many prefer a different setting that the office building.
So, why not have a coffee or a bite of food while we are taking care of the business?
I can meet you at the court building to help you with the self-services form that you need for your case
I can come to your residence if you are unable to leave home
We can meet at the library
We can meet at Anthem Civic Building (my main work location)

Living Trust is the document used to place your personal assets in Trust, a contract form that transfers the assets from you to another upon meeting the decided terms by you. It is primarily used for real estate and valuables, such as precious stones, art collections, or any other items that you would like to avoid probate and transfer immediately to your beneficiary (ies). The other value of creating a Living Trust is the privacy of your assets as they are automatically transferred into trust. Trust does not need to be recorded. The most popular form is Revocable Trust that can be changed at any time, if your situation changes. Once the Trustor (the owner of the trust) is deceased, trust becomes irrevocable, unless there is a provision to transfer the power of Trustor to a spouse. This type of trust is also known as Family Trust.
I prepare your Living Trust for $250 that includes providing all the information you need, research is needed and notary signature. You will receive one original document in paper form and electronic form. Should you need more that one original document, the additional fee for each is $5.
Fair contracts protect both parties involved: those providing a service, goods or property, and those paying for what are offered. Contracts set out legally binding conditions that the parties must adhere to or face legal action. You can protect yourself if you know how to write a legal contract. Generally speaking, your contract is either a service contract, or contract for sales of goods. There are rules on each type and different law applies. To decide whether you should put your agreement in writing, you will need to take a peak in Statute of Fraud in your state.
Make sure all parties are legally able to participate. This means that no minor or person under influence can sign the contract. Exchange something of value to provide consideration as necessary element of every biding contract. Get on the same page, as your offer must be accepted to have the legal significance. A good faith effort has to take place. Confidentiality close is often part of contract, as well as termination clause. Terms have to be specific and detailed. Cover it all. Make sure it is in accordance with the State Statute.
What if you get sued? Contract in writing is essential to your answer, cause of action and defense.

Ugly faces of divorce:
1. Fighting over the child custody and visitations
2. Depression and feeling of failure
3. Inability to agree on how to parent your children
Let go on fighting with one another. You will not get your marriage back, but you can make your divorce less painful. People can agree on almost everything, so why not you two? End your divorce in dignity with the consent decree and not with the judge having to make those decisions for you.
Easier said than done? So here is my story:
Many years later, after the difficult divorce, many hours of counseling and several years of argument, I asked myself why did it take so long to let go? The pain is gone, mistakes forgiven and kids are big. We can still have a good laugh, here and there, when we meet for a coffee or have to make important decisions for our kids. We might say, after bitter years of turmoil first while still together and later while we were divorcing, then we might make better friends that spouses to one another. Time heals wounds and people change. Good memories overrule the bad ones. Kids grow up fast and they have a good tendency to forgive. It really is not that bad.
