My FIL has passed and my husband is the successor trustee. We’d planned on getting a trust attorney to handle the trust paperwork and such. I’ve heard it can take some months to get it all done. His brother, however, thinks they should do it themselves. My gut feeling is we’re in for a lot of work and time we don’t have. I need some feedback on how long it took for you to get trusts settled, how involved was it to do yourselves, did you find it was better to retain an attorney? Thanks in advance.
