A Declaration of Trust is a document that is required under certain circumstances, this Declaration could possibly be helpful after your death if you neglected to transfer a valuable asset to your Trust; it merely confirms that you intended to include all of your assets within your Trust. This Declaration is not a substitute for the requirement that you must transfer ("title") your assets into the name of your Trust in order to avoid a potential probate of those non-Trust assets. This document should be included with a Professionally Drafted Estate Plan.
