Trust & estate planning serve an important purpose. In general, a trust provides greater flexibility and control over how your property and assets are distributed and when.
One of the primary purposes of forming a revocable living trust is that it avoids probate; the court-supervised process required to prove the validity of a deceased person’s will is valid.
This, in turn, can make it faster and easier for your named trustee(s) to distribute your assets to your heirs. This can be especially important if your heirs depend on your income to meet daily living expenses.
Trust allow you to protect your assets from creditors by transferring them to a well-drafted trust, and you can protect your beneficiaries from claims of creditors and predators by keeping those assets in trust over the beneficiary’s lifetime.
