The Importance of Trusts to Your Estate Planning 

Use trusts to help your family avoid probate. It protects their privacy and yours. And trusts free up your trustee to distribute your assets without having to get court approval first.

 

There are several advantages to using trusts in estate planning, especially a living trust. A living trust is created when you are alive and you can change it at any time as long as you remain mentally competent. You control any property in the trust, so you are able to buy, sell or give your property during your lifetime. After you are gone, your family can avoid probate, which can be time consuming and sometimes expensive. In addition, a trust provides your family with added privacy – its terms remain private, unlike those of a will that become public once it’s probated. Finally, your trustee will be able to distribute your assets without having to get court approval, which is less stressful during difficult times.
