How long will it take to set up a trust?

It all depends on the particulars of your case; setting up a trust does not have to take an extremely long time unless there is an unanticipated delay in researching and forming the trust. If everything is in order, setting up a trust can take just a few days. However, the process can also even take several weeks to months. For the best estimate as to how long your own trust will take to set up, it’s best to talk with an attorney who is familiar with the proceedings as well as any potential complications that may delay the process.
