Get Your Living Trust with Legal Zoom Today! A living trust is a term that we hear now and then, related to a person's assets and how they will be divided should that person pass away. A person can create a living trust at any adult age, and know that should the inevitable occur, their home, bank accounts and investments will be pass on to their loved ones without the intervention and delays associated with a court proceeding.

A living trust is a legal document that is often created by a trust lawyer. Involving a traditional attorney can cost thousands of dollars and take months to finalize. However, a number of online legal document companies exist today that allow people to create their own living trusts for just a fraction of the cost of hiring an expensive attorney.

Nolo

NOLO Visit Site

Cost:

$59.95 one-time fee

Nolo is a do-it-yourself legal website that offers consumers a way to process legal documents without the expense of hiring a lawyer to write them. With Nolo you can create your own trademark, file for a patent, and create bankruptcy paperwork among many other legal documents. This review will focus on the living trust service.

The living trust page on the Nolo website is very simple,but perhaps a little too simple. There is a brief statement encouraging folks to create a living trust, and then a section outlining what you get with the service. The problem is, the list is very short and just says "name beneficiaries, avoid probate, and much more."It also indicates that you trust have access to the living trust for one year.

Below that is a FAQ section that outlines what a living trust is and contains a whole list of information about living trusts. There is a lot of information here, and much of it is very helpful. But we weren't too keen on the way it was presented and thought it could be confusing for someone who didn't have any knowledge of living trusts at all.

Moving on to the creation of the living trust itself, we navigated to the "get started" page and were disappointed to find that there is only an option to purchase the online form. With Nolo you must purchase the form for $59.95 in order to even get started. This is in contrast to other Living Trust providers who allow the user to create the living trust first, and then choose to pay for it based on a list of prices for various options.

Regarding the cost, Nolo offers only one option; it is $59.95 to complete the trust and have access for it for one year. This is a lot more costly than some of the other online living trust providers we have reviewed, particularly if someone wanted to renew for more than one year, the cost would be prohibitive.

Nolo is a well-known legal document provider with an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. It's entirely possible that many of their services are top notch, we just don't feel their living trust service is up to par with what other companies have to offer.

Before choosing a do-it-yourself living trust provider, you should consider the following important elements:

  • Information. Does the website thoroughly explain a living trust?
  • Website Functionality. Is the website professional and helpful in walking you through creating a living trust?
  • Guarantee. Does the living trust company back the accuracy of their forms and the information they provide?
  • Cost. How does the cost of creating a living trust compare to similar companies?
