Trusts in Estate Planning – Something for Everyone

When you hear the term “trust” in estate planning, you may think it’s meant only for the wealthy. However, it’s actually a valuable tool that can be used by everyone! Still not certain a trust is for you? Let’s dive a bit deeper…

A standard will becomes public record once filed with the probate court; trusts provide privacy and a higher level of control. With a trust, a legal arrangement is made where a party is designated to hold property on behalf of another. This is done so you may direct the funds to the people and causes you care about, take care of minor children, plan for contingencies and even allow a trustee to care for you and manage your assets if something happens to you.

What Type of Trust is Right for You?

There are many types of trusts we can assist with:

  • Living trusts (revocable or irrevocable)
  • Testamentary trusts
  • Marital trusts
  • Trusts for minors
  • Spendthrift trusts
  • Charitable trusts
  • Credit shelter trusts
  • Insurance trusts
  • Qualified terminable interest property trusts

If you are an individual who values planning, control and privacy, Siedentopf Law can help you with the creation or management of your trust.
