The Importance of Wills & Trusts in Estate Planning

Your Last Will and Testament is a very important document. It contains your clearly stated wishes for the distribution of your assets. It can also create trusts and establish guardianship for minor children. Different types of wills exist, and you will need to determine the best type for you, depending on your assets and your circumstances. When a person dies without a will, he or she has died "intestate," and the assets of the estate will be distributed according to the inheritance laws of the state.

Trusts can be used to distribute assets over time or when an adult child reaches a certain age. They can hold assets for minor children, provide funds for future education, and serve a number of other purposes. One distinct advantage of a trust is that it can be used to avoid the probate process, so that assets will pass to your beneficiaries without approval of the probate court upon your death. Our experienced estate planning lawyers can help you make a will and trust well suited to your plan.
