Q. i have a question, i live in colorado and i was reading that a trust must be registered with the county of residence
A: Your revocable trust does not need to be recorded or registered anywhere. There used to be a statute, that has since been revoked, that required irrevocable trusts to be recorded. This is no longer a requirement.

Upon a Trustors death, during administration, there may be a need to file the trust with a court to complete some task of administration, but not typically.
