The only required document is the trust instrument itself which would identify the terms, trustees etc. if assets are being placed in trust then new deeds, bank account paperwork would be completed too.

I am already frustrated with your response. I will not pay for the answer to a simple question for a lawyer., I would exoppect an answer that the lawyer submits a form blah blah blah to set up the trust
. this is done to de3fine the trust allocation and sets up the trust for tax reasons, responsibilities ect.
