Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Good afternoon and thanks for using Just Answer. I Will Be the Expert Assisting You This Afternoon. The answer to your question is no. Trusts are legal as soon as they are properly executed and witnessed according to the laws of the states where they are being used.Trust are private contracts. The Trust or an abstract from the trust may be recorded in the counties where trust property, particularly real estate is situated. That recording does not have anything to do with legality of the trust though, it Done to give notice to the public of the ownership of immovable property. A trust can be docketed in the probate court of the county where property of the trust is involved if there is a dispute or disagreement among the trustee and beneficiaries which the court is asked to intervene in. Here is an excellent discussion of Louisiana trust law which you might find helpful.http://www.llta.org/dynaweb/1001266/docs/gallinghouse.handout2013.pdf
