Living Trusts

Living Trusts

A living trust is a type of legal arrangement that allows you to control how your assets are distributed after you die. Setting up a living trust yourself would lead to mistakes.  Look for a living trust lawyer to help you.

Types of Living Trusts

There are two types of living trusts: revocable and irrevocable.

Revocable living trusts can be changed at any time. You can add or remove assets from the trust, and you can change the beneficiaries.

Irrevocable living trusts cannot be changed. Once you set up an irrevocable trust, you cannot make any changes to it.

Why Set Up a Living Trust?

There are several reasons why you might want to set up a living trust:

  1. To avoid probate: Probate is a legal process that happens after you die. If you have a will, your assets will go through probate before they are distributed to your beneficiaries. If you have a living trust, your assets can be distributed without going through probate.
  2. To protect your assets: If you are worried about your assets being taken away from you, setting up a living trust can help. When you set up a trust, you can choose who will manage the trust and how the assets in the trust will be used.
  3. To control how your assets are distributed: If you want to make sure that your assets are distributed in a certain way after you die, setting up a living trust can help. You can specify exactly how and when your beneficiaries will receive their inheritance.
