Gun Trust Attorney in Utah
A gun trust is a legal trust available in the United States that allows people to register for ownership of an NFA firearm with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). It also allows a person to transfer that ownership to an heir in the event of the original owner’s death, but in order to do that you will need the help of a lawyer who is experienced in estate planning.
When you have a gun trust you will be able to quickly and easily transfer ownership rights without going through the process that is normally required. That process includes attaching a fingerprint sample, having a passport-style photograph taken, and obtaining the signature of the area’s chief law enforcement officer.
The use of the gun trust has become so popular that by 2014 there were as many as 200,000 applications. With such high demand, the backlog for most individual applicants is long and the process can be tedious. Our gun trust lawyers focus on drafting the necessary paperwork that can help to expedite your approval process with the ATF and get you the gun trust that you need sooner.
Our experienced legal team can also help you acquire and transfer heavily regulated items such as silencers, fully automatic guns, short-barreled rifles, and short-barreled shotguns.
Whether you already know the type of gun trust you need and just want some help getting the paperwork done, or you want some advice on what would work best for you, call us today.
