Estate planning is the best protection for your home, real property and financial assets in the event of your death. Estate planning includes the creation of a will or in certain cases, a trust, as well as tax planning for both your income and estate taxes. Other aspects of estate planning may involve healthcare directives or a power of attorney in the event of incapacity.
One of the most important aspects of an estate plan is a properly structured, executed and witnessed will. A will is a public record which specifies how your assets are to be overseen and distributed.
A trust ensures your assets bypass the time-consuming and occasionally unpredictable probate courts which preserves your estate and saves money. A trust is a three-party fiduciary relationship in which the trustor gives the trustee, the right to manage the use and access of an asset for the benefit of a third party, the beneficiary. Furthermore, unlike a will which is public record, a trust is not and therefore provides additional privacy.
We create revocable and irrevocable trusts either executable upon death known as testamentary or living trusts also called inter vivos.
