State Specific Question About: ILLINOIS (IL)

Do I have to live in another state to form a Trust under that state?

Trusts (by plenty [MO]) Posted on: Feb 19, 2018 4:23 PM

Did you recently take a class? What are you trying to do? Purpose of the trust. What state were u considering opening this trust? --66.87.xx.xx

No, but depending on the kind of trust you may need a local agent. You need to provide a lot more detail to get a worthwhile answer.

Trusts (by Pmh [TX]) Posted on: Feb 21, 2018 3:25 PM

short answer. no.

No you don't, but having an attorney as a trustee in a different state is a solid strategy.

You can claim attorney - client privilege if trouble would ever happen. Also getting served in two separate states is more difficult than just one. Where nothing is full proof, you would be making yourself a less desirable target
