Trusts

A trust, as a legal entity that holds assets for someone’s benefit, are a powerful tool for accomplishing a wide array of goals. They also have several unique benefits.

First, by creating a trust and funding it with your assets during your lifetime, you can ensure that your family never has to go through the probate process. This is especially important if you own property in multiple states, as probate is often required in each state in which you own assets. Costs of probate also range by state and can become a financial burden on your family.

Second, trusts can help you control your finances beyond the time of your death. For example, if you do not wish to give your children a lump sum payment, a trust can ensure that your children have access to the money for basic needs, such as healthcare and education, but that they do not receive a lump sum distribution until they are old enough to manage it wisely. Keeping your child’s inheritance in a trust can also protect those assets from your child’s creditors or a divorce settlement during the child’s lifetime, or simply from the child’s poor financial judgment.

Furthermore, you can set aside money in a trust for what you think is important; money can be designated for the care of a disabled spouse or family member, or even for a pet.

Finally, trusts can also be an efficient tax planning measure. If estate tax is a potential concern, a trust can be formed that will help ensure that you maximize the tax exemptions available to your heirs.

We can help you customize your estate plan so it is best for your family and your specific needs. With the creation of a trust, we can help you not only control the distribution of your assets but also the way in which the assets are used by the recipient for years to come.

Without a will your family members or others may be able to divide your property or the courts may be required to intervene and have a ruling as to how your property should be divided. In many instances the ways that the property may be divided would be against the wishes of the...

Pet Trusts as a Part of an Estate Plan

Increasingly, state laws are changing to reflect the importance of the relationship between us and our beloved pets. This means that some laws are no longer treating pets solely as property during a divorce, and are allowing funds to be left for Fido or Fluffy in the event of death or incapacitation.  The development of pet trusts is a part of the animal rights movement and they allow owners to stipulate what they would like to happen to their pet in the event they are no longer able to take care of them and are not able to communicate these...
