Living Trusts

Most people in California chose to have a trust to control how their assets will be distributed upon their death. The contact us
reason for this is simple: Trusts are some of the most powerful tools in the estate planner’s toolbox. There are a number of different trusts available, each of which can help you achieve an important planning goal. One of the most commonly used trusts is the Revocable Living Trust. When properly designed and implemented, it can provide all of the following benefits:

  • Avoiding probate. Not only is the probate process time-consuming and needlessly expensive, it also exposes your assets and estate to public scrutiny
  • As its name implies, a Revocable Living Trust is “revocable.” It can be changed over time, to compensate for changes in your financial and family situation
  • Basic Wills often cause disagreements among family members and other beneficiaries. A Revocable Living Trust can help eliminate challenges to your Will and ensure your beneficiaries actually receive what you want them to receive
  • A Revocable Living Trust can allow for separation of assets. This is useful for married couples
  • A Revocable Living Trust allows for on-going financial management. As your wealth accumulates, so too will the assets in your Revocable Living Trust
