If you both have lawyers, you will need to conduct the document exchange through them, but it should be a fairly straightforward process. The benefit of trying to get her agreement now is that once you end up fighting about the trust, you would be able to show that she once agreed to it and is now changing her mind for whatever reason.
You do not need moms ok.Thats absurd.Just be sure its a support trust and dont let policy lapse or your estate will be sued.Ive handled several cases where just that fact pattern occurred.
