Trusts & Estate Planning

Many people believe that having a “Will” gives them and their family all the protection they need upon someone’s death. But the fact of the matter is that a will isn’t worth the paper it is printed on, until you’re dead. The will must go through Probate and it is public, so anyone can find out about what is in your will and who will benefit from it. Probate is a long and expensive process, which comes with more problems than you can imagine. But there is a much better way to protect your assets. The answer is a Revocable Living Trust, with the supporting documents. The Revocable Living Trust is private, you avoid Probate and your property goes to your designated beneficiaries, quickly and easily. You avoid all the risks and expenses of Probate. Among the supporting documents are a durable power of attorney, a durable power of attorney for health care, durable power of attorney for financial matters. To be valid, the assets MUST be titled in the name of the trust and transferred into the Revocable Living Trust. A Trust can also be used to provide for beneficiaries with special needs, and countless other situations, which cannot be done with a will
