What is a living trust?

One of the great things about estate planning is that it is a customizable process. Depending on your needs and the way in which you want your assets distributed upon your death, you can tailor your estate plan accordingly. While this is a relief to many, it can also seem overwhelming to others as they may quickly become confused about the options available to them, or they may simply become too complacent to modify an estate plan to mirror their current situation. This can be problematic, which is why we strive to educate our readers about the many estate planning vehicles that they may utilize to further their and their estate's best interests.

Arizona firm helping families establish trusts

Estate planning is important for a variety of reasons. Amongst those reasons are the protection of an estate's assets. Although a will may be able to help delineate how property is to be distributed upon one's death, the document itself, if improperly drafted can be contested. Also, those who pass away with a will may still have to go through probate to a certain extent, which can be time-consuming and costly. The best way to avoid these issues is to secure an estate's assets in various trusts.

The benefits of the charitable trust

When it comes to estate planning, you have a variety of legal tools at your disposal. You can create a will that spells out how your assets will be distributed upon your death, but you can also create a number of trusts to help both protect your estate and ensure that assets are distributed on your terms. There are a variety of trusts to meet your needs, which means that you should learn about the various trust types and their benefits before completing your estate planning.

Is the AB trust right for me?

There are a variety of tools at one's disposal when it comes to formulating a solid estate plan. In order to ensure that an estate plan is tailored to an individual's unique needs and wishes, they must become familiar with all options available to them and decide accordingly. This may sound easy enough, but the truth of the matter is that the number of options can become overwhelming. This can be especially true with trusts.

Will the new tax laws effect my estate plan?

Whether you are just starting to create your estate plan or you already have one in place, it is important to remember to continue to maintain it over time. The new federal tax laws may also have an effect on your wills, trusts and other accounts, particularly if your estate is of a higher value. Your estate planning attorney and financial advisors can help you understand how these new laws will affect you and your family.

What does a trustee do?

When you create a trust in Sun City, you are essentially putting some of your most valuable assets in an account for future distribution. That is why it is so important to make sure that the trustee you assign to manage your trust is reliable and able to effectively manage your property on a daily basis.

Should you create a pet trust?

As people start the estate planning process, they often forget to consider their pets. While a friend or family member may have offered to care for your pet should anything happen to you, they may be underestimating the time and money required to take care of the pet. As a result, many Arizona animals end up without a home once their owners pass away. A trust may be the best way to protect and provide for your pet long-term.

How to prepare for the end of a trust

As many Arizona residents start to think about estate planning, they start considering trusts as a way to distribute their property upon their death. Trusts can offer your family security and stability during an otherwise difficult time in their lives. Trusts can help lower the amount of estate taxes owed and help your family avoid probate.

How can I get started with estate planning?

We often hear how important it is for us to start preparing for the future, particularly when it comes to our assets. Without a thorough estate plan in place, your children or other relatives may end up in a bitter dispute over the family home or other valuable property. However, according to a survey by WealthCounsel, a majority of Americans feel that estate planning is confusing and they do not have a will or trust in place.

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.
