Q: What are the benefits of working with an attorney on a will or trust?
A: In any
estate planning matter it is vital to have the help of an attorney in order to create
a legally binding
will, planning for
trust administration and other matters that fully incorporate your wishes for your estate and
the care of beneficiaries. By doing so, you can help your family avoid
drawn out and emotionally stressful probate court proceedings.
Q: How can I protect myself and my estate should I become incapacitated?
A: There are several options for ensuring your wishes are adhered to in
the event that you are unable to make certain decisions due to illness
or an accident. Speak with an attorney about setting up an
Advanced Health Care Directive (AHCD) or
durable powers of attorney.
Q: How do a trust and a living trust differ?
A: In a
living trust, the trust is put into effect while the creator is still alive and so
becomes in essence the trustee and beneficiary. In a traditional trust
initiated by the will of a decedent, beneficiaries do not receive benefits
until the creator has passed away.
