WILLS, TRUSTS & ESTATES
A will is a written direction controlling the disposition of property at death. Drafting a legal will ensures that the assets you spent a lifetime accumulating will be preserved for the benefit of your heirs.
The benefits of having a will include:
Choose who you would like to benefit from your estate.
Protect the interests of minor beneficiaries.
Nominate guardians for your minor beneficiaries.
Nominate an executor or trustees of your choice.
In the instance that you have acquired a will from a loved one who passed and do not know what to do with it after their death, you can get more information here.
Feel free to contact us if you have questions or if you need more information on what it takes for us to make a will for you.
A trust passes property outside of probate court. There are no court or attorney fees after the trust is established. Your property can be passed immediately and directly to your named beneficiaries.
Benefits of having a trust include:
Allowing you to put conditions on how and when your assets are distributed after you die.
Reduce estate and gift taxes.
It allows you to distribute your assets to your heirs efficiently without the cost, delay and publicity of probate court.
Although many people believe wills and trusts are basically the same, there are important details about both that differ. To learn more about what these differences are, you can read more here.
Feel free to contact us if you have questions or if you need more information on what it takes for us to make a trust for you.
An estate is the net worth of a person at any point in time either dead or alive. It is the sum of a person’s assets – legal rights, interests and entitlements to property of any kind – less all liabilities at that time.
