Experienced Estate Planning Lawyers of Wills and Trusts
A will is a document that directs what is to be done with a person’s property after death. While there is no legal requirement to have a will, if a person dies without one, that person’s estate will be distributed according to state law. A will allows a person to direct how property should be divided after death. It can also name the person who will handle the estate after death and decrease the expenses of estate administration.
A trust, often referred to as a revocable living trust, is an alternative to a traditional will. A trust is a document that benefits you during your lifetime and at death. A trust allows you to plan the management of your estate during your lifetime if you become incapacitated, and it directs how your assets should be divided at death. Unlike a will, a trust is a private document, which means it can be administered without court involvement.
The requirements for a last will and a living trust vary by state, so consider meeting with a qualified lawyer to determine what is required and what option is best for you.
