Upon your death, unless you have expressly planned for your estate, your assets will be distributed based upon the laws and statutes in effect at that time, and the beneficiaries may not be the ones you intend. To ensure that your wishes in this distribution are carried out, you may need a last will and testament, trust, or other estate planning documents.
A trust is a beneficial instrument in that it can protect your assets from estate taxes and the probate process. We will discuss with you the advantages of a revocable or irrevocable trust, along with the responsibilities of the Trustees.
During your life Revocable Living Trusts are particularly helpful to provide for you and your family if you become disabled. Upon your death, it can also distribute the trust assets as you might do your last will and testament.
