Trusts: Know Your Options
Trusts are fiduciary arrangements in which one party holds and manages your assets for a beneficiary. Some of the options you have for incorporating a trust into your estate plan include:
- Irrevocable trusts
- AB trusts
- Asset protection trusts
- Charitable trusts
- Special needs trusts
You do not need to have significant wealth to use a trust. They can benefit you and your inheritors greatly by minimizing the impact of taxes and granting you more control over your assets.
What Are The Benefits Of Having A Will?
Every adult should have a lawyer create a legally sound will for them. Some of the most important reasons to have a will include:
- Making the probate process faster, simpler and less expensive for your loved ones
- Transferring assets to the right beneficiaries
- Donating money to the charities of your choice
- Selecting a guardian for your minor children or an adult who has special needs
Most courts will not honor wills that you create yourself with documents that you find online. To ensure that the court upholds your will and other estate planning documents, have our attorneys create them for you.
