Set Up the Future With a Trust

If you want to control the distribution of your assets without going through probate, then setting up a Trust, instead of a Will, is your best option. It is important to keep in mind that with a Trust, you have to transfer your properties under the name of the Trust.

If you have minor children, establishing a Trust can give you peace of mind. You can be assured that even after you die, your children will have assets and resources to be used for their needs and education.

Though a trust can be contested in court, it can prevent the need for probate and discourage opportunistic relatives from meddling and making false claims on your assets. Your intended beneficiaries can receive their share of the estate without going through a lengthy and costly court proceeding.

To establish a valid Trust, consult the team at Anthoor Law Group. Our experienced Bay Area Trust attorney can walk you through the process.

Comprehensive Estate Planning Services

In estate planning, it is best to cover all your bases. Aside from creating a Trust, you can also call us if you need help with the following:

  • Writing a Will
  • Guardianship
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Health Care Directives
  • HIPAA Authorization
  • Trust Transfer Deeds
  • Quitclaim Deeds
  • Assignment of Business
  • Stock Power
  • Special Needs Trust

Wills vs. Trusts

Wills and Trusts are the most useful tools in estate planning. Both serve a similar purpose: to direct the distribution and transfer of properties to your heirs and chosen beneficiaries. However, the creation and execution of these documents are not the same. A Last Will is easier to prepare and can be written down without an attorney. A Trust, however, is more complicated to set up.

Establishing the Trust itself is a straightforward process. However, since you have to transfer your properties under the Trust’s name, this would entail more work. And if you acquire new properties, you have to make sure that the deed should be named under the Trust. You would need a Bay Area Trust attorney to ensure all your assets are accounted for, inventoried, and transferred in the name of your Trust.

Different Kinds of Trusts

Trusts can be revocable or irrevocable. Revocable Trusts can be changed or updated within your lifetime. You may add new properties under it or name a new beneficiary if you wish. An Irrevocable Trust, however, is difficult to change. While it is possible to amend an Irrevocable Trust, it requires the approval of the judge.

Experienced attorneys at Anthoor Law Group usually advise clients to establish a Revocable Trust for the purpose of estate planning. Our Trust attorneys understand the importance of a flexible document and will help carry out amendments to ensure the details are up to date.

Advantages of a Trust

The main advantage of a Trust is that, unlike a Last Will, it does not need to go through probate to be enforced. Essentially, it is a smoother way to transfer properties to your heirs and beneficiaries. There is no need to deal with court procedures and fees or wait for months to get approval.

Another advantage is that it is easier to add new assets to a Trust. Once a Revocable Trust is established, any newly acquired property can be directly named under the Trust. With a Will, you have to make constant amendments or create a new one altogether to include new properties.

Is a Will Necessary If You Already Have a Trust?

A Will is still important, even if you have already established a Trust. Trusts are generally concerned with the distribution of your assets. It cannot include burial and funeral instructions or appoint a guardian for minor children. These, however, can be specified under a Will.

At Anthoor Law Group, our Bay Area Trust attorney advises clients to prepare both documents. The goal is to help you prepare a more comprehensive estate planning strategy and give you and your family peace of mind. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
