Oregon Revocable Living Trust Form

Oregon Revocable Living Trust Form

Updated August 02, 2023

The Oregon revocable living trust is used as a primary means of distributing a person’s estate in order to avoid the probate process. Any property not placed in the trust will still be subject to probate when the Grantor’s estate is distributed. The other advantages of creating a revocable living trust instead of putting all your assets into a Will are that the information regarding the distribution of assets is kept private and that the Grantor will be properly cared for through the Trust in the event that they become incapacitated. Furthermore, with a revocable living trust, the Grantor continues to benefit from and enjoy their assets, and can revoke or amend the Trust during their lifetime.
