What Is a Trust?

A trust is a fiduciary relationship where a trustee gains ownership and/or assets belonging to the trustor. The trustor is the person who creates the trust, while the trustee is similar to a beneficiary who gains access to property at a time designated by the trustor.

In general, trusts transfer control directly from trustor to trustee without the need for a will, executor, or probate. Trusts are a more secure way to transfer ownership of an asset, but they can also be tedious and expensive to create. They also require active management.

There are several types of trusts, including:

  • Living trust: A revocable document that details the transfer of an estate, real property, assets, or ownership to a trustee. The trustor can change the trust at will and may choose to pass ownership during their lifetime.
  • Irrevocable trust: An irrevocable trust cannot be changed, unlike a living (revocable) trust. Once the property is transferred into an irrevocable trust, no one can change the terms of ownership, including the trustor.
  • Charitable trust: A trustor may grant ownership to a charity organization or the general public. In these cases, the trust is part of an overall estate plan carried out after the trustor’s death.

Depending on the type of trust created, the trustor can include different provisions and requests in their documents. Each trust has its own rules and requirements and may be confusing without the guidance of an attorney.

Creating a Trust in New Jersey

Trusts save families time and money during probate, but they also cost time and money to create. For trustors in New Jersey, drafting a trust should only be done with the counsel of a lawyer. Once a trust is established, the property may be transferred more efficiently, and the deceased’s loved ones get the peace of mind they need.

To create a trust, the trustor must decide which property to include and who it will go to after death. It is important to include a detailed description of the trustee and beneficiaries and the expectations for the transference of assets. Once the terms of the trust are defined, the trustor must sign the document in front of a notary public. The title of any property in the trust must be changed to reflect the transference of ownership.

A trust does not replace a will. If you choose to create a trust, you should also draft a will to ensure that your interests are protected. Trusts can streamline inheritance, but a will allows you to designate a guardian for minor children and account for property that has not been transferred to the trust. Essentially, a will and trust go hand in hand to protect your legacy.

  • Forever Grateful

    “Professional and absolutely down to earth, Mrs Rosin-Golinder and her knowledgeable staff listened to my needs and crafted a prenuptial agreement that will not only act as a safety net for my business but as piece of mind if thing don’t go as planned. With my first marriage around the corner, my first child on the way and preparing for my first mobilization , it was an amazing feeling to have something I feared and was very very uncertain of, turn out for the best. Thank you is most certainly an understatement but for the sake of expression..... THANK YOU. You definitely have a client for life. Two thumbs up LIZ!!!”

  • Short, Sweet and Thankful

    “All I have to say is this, Elizabeth is an exceptional Lawyer, and in the field of Law, I can tell you she is a game-changer, I came to her in dire need to help me obtain my Daughter through emergency circumstances, the timing was urgent, and in a matter of hours she was able to accomplish custody of my daughter, she had only 2 hours to prepare for our hearing. That's all she needed, as sharp as she is, surprised it took her that long, Ha. This is a person that reminded me that there is a lot of good in this world. If anyone were to read this, I want to assure you that she will exhaust every opportunity and resource to get the job done accordingly. I would highly, HIGHLY, recommend her to anyone in need of Professional. Job Well Done Elizabeth, Zoë and I are very thankful.”

  • Amazing Lawyer!!!

    “Elizabeth was amazing from the very beginning of my divorce process. She not only was clear and prompt in all communication, but also connected with me on a personal level where I felt very comfortable going into all details of my divorce and the reasons why I was getting divorced. I whole heartily recommend her and her team. Not only did she help me through the process, but did so within 4 months! I met her in March and was divorced by June! Thank you so much Liz, you are truly an exceptional lawyer!!”

  • Successful Relocation

    “Elizabeth Rozin-Golinder successfully represented my wife on a couple of occasions. Once was for child custody and the most recent was for child relocation, which required a plenary hearing. Elizabeth was very easy to communicate with in person, over the phone and through email. She worked very diligently to ensure that each case was aggressively presented and won. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone in need of a top notch family attorney.”

  • Exceptional Attorney

    “Elizabeth has been representing our family for over a year now in a very sad and complicated custody case that involves the protection of my step daugter. It was a case where the original custody was out of another state. From the day we retained her she's been a godsend. Her motions and arguments reflect the personal interest she takes in every client. She's direct, honest, and very realistic. She's taken us through the temporary emergency custody process...the permanent custody process...and now the child support and contested custody process. She was instrumental in getting the jurisdiction of the child's custody granted to NJ. She has always prepared us for the worst yet we walked out with what we needed to happen each and every time. She's still fighting for this child through this last phase. Elizabeth is a true child advocate it's been apparent since day one. You never know what judges are going to decide but Elizabeth knows the laws, she knows the court room game, she develops a strategy and in my family's eyes she's a top notch attorney. I know one day soon she will climb to the ranks of one of the most powerful family attorneys in this state if she isn't alreay there. She's aggressive, smart, honest and a true talent at what she does.”
