Importance of a Trust

Posted on July 10, 2020 in Firm News

People generally do not realize how important it is to have a trust. If someone passes away without a trust the assets will generally be probated.  Probate is a court proceeding where assets are distributed. Wills are probated. The probate process can take 6 months or more to complete.

Having a trust in place avoids the probate process. Avoiding probate allows assets to be distributed quickly and efficiently. A trust packages consists of:

  • Trust
  • Power of Attorney
  • Health care Power of attorney
  • Healthcare directive
  • Pour over will
  • Certificate of Trust

With all these documents in place one can rest assured that your loved ones will be able to take care of things after you pass away.
