Wills and Trusts
Generally speaking, a will is a legal instrument that provides instruction for distribution of your assets. A trust is a special relationship in which an individual holds title to property and administers the property for the benefit of the trust’s beneficiaries, according to the trust creator’s interests.
There are a variety of legal instruments, including several different wills and trusts, which can be used to accomplish your specific objectives, including:
- Simple wills, joint wills and pour-over wills
- Living wills and powers of attorney
- Irrevocable and revocable trusts
- Spendthrift provisions, which are provisions put into a trust that prohibit a third party from accessing assets intended to go to the beneficiary of the trust
- Special needs trusts
Depending on your individual situation and goals, these legal instruments can be used together to create a comprehensive estate plan that will protect your assets and grant you the peace of mind that comes with strategically planning for your future.
