Wills

A last will and testament is the foundation of your estate plan. Without it, your assets and property will be subject to the probate process and will be distributed by the court according to state law without your input. Probate can be a time-consuming and expensive process that can lead to conflicts and contests among heirs and beneficiaries.

Your last will and testament will:

  • Designate who will inherit your assets
  • Designate when and how they will receive the assets
  • Name an executor (personal representative) who will guide your estate through the probate process according to your instructions
  • Name a guardian for any minor children

A living will – also called an advance health directive – is different from a last will and testament. A living will outlines your wishes regarding medical care should you become incapacitated or reach the end of your life.

Trusts

Trusts are fiduciary arrangements that allow you to safely pass assets onto beneficiaries. The most common is the living trust, a revocable trust in which you place your assets so that they can be managed during your lifetime as well as when you pass away. Usually, you act as the trustee of your trust during your lifetime and can make any changes you wish. You will also name a trustee to ensure the assets are passed onto your beneficiaries once you have passed away. A trust allows for the easy transfer of your property and assets to your heirs and beneficiaries without having to go to court. This can save time, money, and taxes in the transfer of your assets.

Other trusts can be set up for specific purposes such as charitable trusts, trusts for relatives with special needs, trusts for pets, and more.
