Why Create a Trust?
Trusts are more complex than a simple will; however, there are numerous advantages to creating a trust, including:
- Minimization of estate taxes: A trust can help you avoid estate taxes, particularly when your estate exceeds the current credit shelter amount.
- Avoid probate: Probate can be a lengthy and expensive process. A well-crafted trust will avoid probate of your estate.
- Control when inheritance is distributed: A trust can be set up to disburse inheritance to your heirs at a time of your choosing. Under a will, your heirs will collect at once, which can lead to obvious problems if your heirs are young adults.
- Confidentiality: Probate proceedings are public information. If it is important to you to keep the value of your estate private, a trust will assure confidentiality.
These are just some of the advantages a trust affords. Our experienced Barrington trusts attorneys can inform you about the various trusts available, from special needs trusts to insurance trusts. Our law firm can help you with all of your estate planning needs.
