Control Your Estate
A trust is the only vehicle that allows you to control disbursements from the grave. It can be set up while you are still alive, allowing you to access your assets while providing specific benefits to certain beneficiaries. When you pass away the trust will continue to operate according to the terms you established. For example, a child or grandchild may receive a certain amount of money at the age of 18 years and another amount after graduating from college. A trust is also an excellent way to protect your assets and either streamline or avoid probate.
Special Needs Trusts
If you have a special needs child it is very possible that your child will outlive you. Therefore, one of the primary concerns you may be facing is how to provide for that child after you are gone. A special needs trust is set up for the specific purpose of providing for a loved one who is in need of long-term care.
Working With You
Whatever your concerns, we will take the time to listen and examine the details of your estate. By providing straightforward and honest assessment of the strengths and risks of your estate, we will give you the information you need to make educated legal decisions.
