Why you should "trust" trusts as part of your estate plan

Trusts are often the best way for Arizona residents to distribute assets without having to worry about the costly and time-consuming probate process. There are many benefits to using a trust in Arizona. For one thing, a trust can offer protection. When someone passes away, the probate process allows the public to access information regarding the deceased's will and assets. As the estate goes through probate, the creditors will be paid off, and probate fees in the range of 3 to 8 percent of the total estate will be assigned, plus estate and income taxes.

Estate planning requires more than just a will

Many Sun City residents assume that the only estate planning they need to do is deciding who gets the family home, or other important assets, once they pass away. While writing a will is a crucial part of the estate planning process, it is far from being the only part. In addition to dividing up your assets after death, you also need to make sure you take care of yourself while you are alive. For example, some people suffer illness or injuries that make it impossible for them to make the necessary plans.

If I die without a will, who gets my stuff?

Estate planning experts constantly remind us that we should create a will as soon as possible in order to avoid dying without a will. It is important to understand why they say this. If you die without a will, Arizona's intestate laws will determine how your property will be distributed to your heirs. If you do not have any relatives, the state will take possession of the estate. That is why having a will is essential, particularly for unmarried couples.

Should I create a special needs trust for my child?

One of the best ways to protect your children's future is to create a will and designate them as beneficiaries. That way, they will be taken care of after you and your spouse are deceased. This may seem simple enough, but the process becomes much more complicated if you are the parent of a child who has special needs.

Wills are not only for the wealthy

One of the biggest misconceptions people have about estate planning is that it is only for the wealthy. However, even people with only a few assets should create a will to settle their estates upon their death. Creating a will is not for your benefit, but rather for the benefit of your loved ones.
