Your assets are valuable – treat them as such with the help of our Glendora trust attorney.
Why Do I Need to Create a Trust?
We often get asked the question, “Is a trust necessary if I already have a will?” and our answer is always “Yes!” A trust has benefits that a will simply does not provide and can be an additional layer of protection for your assets.
The advantages of having a trust include:
- Allows all assets included in the trust to avoid probate
- Avoids a conservatorship
- Can reduce or eliminate federal estate taxes
- Is revocable during the lifetime of the trustors
A living trust is a document you prepare during your lifetime that gives you the opportunity to act as the trustee, thus having full control over all property held in the trust. Probate avoidance is immensely motivating for those looking to form a trust, because going through probate is often a long, complex process.
Your trust document should include your name and the names of those who will inherit property. Once the document is signed in front of a public notary, you can transfer property to your trust. Most trusts include a successor trustee, an individual who becomes responsible after your death.
