Guys, your local law library, at the courthouse nearest you, has any number of legal form books, and this is where lawyers get their forms…nobody sits down these days with a blank sheet of paper and just starts in!
So go read, and help yourself to any forms therein, and you’ll find hundreds of trust forms, and hundreds of separate clauses and paragraphs which you can include, as they may fit your needs. And the library will have a copy machine right there that’s primarily used by lawyers to copy library material.
By the way, any legal form book is always fair game for copying and use by any individual who may want…you need to understand and realize that these form books are, themselves, compilations and collections of earlier forms, gathered from individual lawyers over the years.
Nothing about trusts or their use is recent or original, and as I can recall, trusts have probably been in steady use since not long after William the Conquerer got to England in 1066.
Oh,when you get to the law library, just ask the law librarian or attendant to point out to where the form books, or sets, are…and you’ll want to see CJS Forms, Am Jur Forms, and any specialized will and trust form books they may have…and show you also where the copy machine is, and you’re all set.
