I suggest that you read the Sections and Q&As on etstae planning, wills, and trusts on FreeAdvice.
Control and Asset Protecion are often incompatible.
If you have a total estate (assets plus life insurance and 401k etc.) of less that $675,000 Federal estate tax is not an issue.
A Will is a necessity, even with a trust of any type to cover any proerty left out - like that lottery ticket you pick up just before soemthing happens.
