Understanding Trusts and Estate Planning

Types of Trusts

There are several types of trusts. Each of these trusts needs to be tailored by an experienced estate planning attorney in order to achieve their purpose for creation. It also takes legal knowledge to create these trusts in line with state law provisions. Some common trusts we have we help our clients create include the following:

Revocable Living Trust

These are trusts created during a person’s lifetime that can be adjusted or revoked at any time. Our clients benefit from the flexibility it offers, being able to update it or completely revoke the trust during their lifetime. They are able to change the provisions of the trust to align with new developments and circumstances in their life.

Irrevocable Trust

An irrevocable trust cannot be altered once it’s executed. While not very flexible, it offers many benefits, like minimizing estate tax and providing creditor protection for your assets.

Special Needs Trust

For those with specific needs, such as a family member with disabilities, a special needs trust may be appropriate. It allows you to provide for your loved one’s care without disrupting their eligibility for government assistance.
