What Can a Trust Do?
In some ways, a trust is much like a will since you can state your wishes regarding who will receive your assets and property after you pass. However, in many other ways a trust is different.
When you create a trust, you can:
- Keep your beneficiaries from paying court fees and estate taxes
- Protect your assets and property from loss through divorce or from creditors your beneficiaries might have
- Keep your beneficiaries from enduring a lengthy probate process
- Direct where remaining assets should go if a beneficiary passes away
One of the biggest draws of creating a trust is that it will allow your assets to pass on to your beneficiaries privately and rapidly. The probate process can be lengthy and become a headache for your beneficiaries and, ultimately, a judge will have a final say on who receives which assets. A trust will allow your loved ones to avoid this entire ordeal. It is hard enough to lose someone you love, so sparing your beneficiaries any unnecessary stress or unwanted scrutiny is something you should consider.
Our Estate Planning Team will work with you to create a trust that not only controls who receives your assets, but how they are paid out. You can even choose which trustees will carry out the wishes directed in a trust fund. Whatever your needs or goals may be, our team can guide you through it.
