A trust is an estate planning tool that can be used to pass assets on to beneficiaries at death. There are many different types of trusts; the most common trust is called a revocable living trust. Here are some of the benefits of a revocable living trust:

  • Avoid probate. Not only is the probate process expensive and time-consuming, it is also allows the public to learn details about your financial situation
  • Since the trust is revocable, it can be changed over time to compensate for changes in your financial and family situation
  • It helps to eliminate challenges to your will and ensuring your beneficiaries receive what you have intended them to receive
  • It allows for what is known as the separation of assets. This is useful for married couples
  • Can allow for continuous financial management. As you accumulate more money and assets, you can add more assets to the trust

In addition to a revocable living trust, we can design and implement a number of other trusts to help you accomplish specific goals. These include:

  • Life insurance trusts
  • Grantor retained annuity trusts
  • Dynasty trusts
  • Charitable trusts
  • Irrevocable trusts
  • Asset protection trusts
