The purpose of this resource is to guide the reader through the steps necessary to create a living trust in the State of Florida. The procedural formalities will be detailed, as well as any recent developments and common pitfalls.
Additionally, each page will have a "Breakdown" box located front and center. The purpose of this box is to give a brief summary of the resources provided on that particular page, and provide further guidance to the layman.
Wherever possible when links are provided, I have attempted to link to a free, convenient resource. However, sometimes highly specific inquiries were beyond the scope of free resources or the time of the author, so in those situations a Westlaw, Lexis, or Bloomberg Law link are provided, where the information can be accessed for a fee. A law library's physical books are also an excellent low-cost or free alternative.
Please see disclaimer before using. A licensed attorney should always be consulted before taking any legal action.

Do not, under any circumstances, rely on information found on our website as legal advice. Legal matters are often complicated.

No Lawyer-Client Relationship Created
This guide does not create in any way, shape or form an attorney-client relationship. Once again, no attorney-client relationship is formed nor should any such relationship be implied. In addition, any information sent by email through the internet is not confidential and does not create a lawyer-client, advisory, or fiduciary, relationship.
