Trusts, Wills, and Probate
There are many benefits to creating a trust. For starters, you are able to communicate how you would like your estate to be handled after your death. This means you can pass on your possessions and finances to your heirs. A trust also avoids the probate process because it will remain confidential when activated. However, trusts are more expensive than wills and take more time to complete. If your family is of a larger net worth, you might want to consider drafting a living trust. If you choose to write a will, you will be able to direct your family with your wishes. A will, however, will not remain confidential and will most likely have to go through the probate process. If any problems arise, our attorney is here to lead you through the procedure. Contact our attorney today to talk about your estate planning needs.
