WILLS AND TRUSTS VS PROBATE
A Will gives you peace of mind on how your estate and assets will be distributed after you pass away. If you die without a will, which is referred to as intestate, the state decides what will happen to your assets and your estate as a whole.
A Trust helps you avoid probate, minimize taxes, provides flexibility, and allows you to have access to and maintain control of assets during your lifetime. A Trust allows you to appoint a Trustee to distribute your assets according to your instructions.
Why you need a Will or Trust put in place:
A Will or Trust is necessary in order to avoid Probate, an arduous, lengthy process, which is also costly and confusing. Dealing with Probate puts a huge burden on your loved ones while in mourning. There are several mandated forms that must be filed through the court, putting a hold on your property and assets until the court makes a decision.
Who needs a Will or Trust… Everyone!
GUARDIANSHIP OF MINORS
For those with minor children if something should happen to you, you would want to have in place who the guardian should be of your child/children, or else the court will decide.
PLANNING FOR BLENDED FAMILIES
Families with Step-Children need to put their wishes in place, as the children are often times treated differently by the court.
PROVING FOR FAMILY MEMBERS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
For those with a family member with special needs, you want to have a Guardian and Trust set up to ensure that they are cared for.
These trusts are put in place to make sure that your beloved pet is taken good care of after you pass away.
