Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Because it safeguards the wealth you’ve worked hard to accumulate, ensuring it passes on to your beneficiaries rather than being consumed in government processes and bureaucracy.

Certainly. Without creating your own estate plan, the government’s default “Intestate Probate” plan may come into play, inviting government interference in your estate’s distribution. This process involves public scrutiny, court approvals for bill payments, spousal allowances, and property accounting leaving your family vulnerable to a complex and impersonal government system. Moreover, the government’s estate plan doesn’t prioritize minimizing death taxes, unlike personalized estate planning options that can offer tax-saving strategies.

In the event of mental disability without an estate plan or just a Will, you could face “living probate” or conservatorship. This involves the probate court appointing someone to manage your assets and personal matters, with court-appointed agents obligated to provide a detailed financial account, making the process costly, time-consuming, and potentially humiliating.

Yes, of course. When you set up a Living Trust, you have the option to serve as your own trustee, a common choice among trust creators. If married, both spouses can act as co-trustees, maintaining absolute control over the trust’s assets. In case of mental disability, a successor trustee of your choice, not a court appointee, takes charge of managing your affairs.

Not at all. A Living Trust is not exclusive to the wealthy people. It serves as a valuable tool for anyone seeking to shield their family from probate fees, attorney’s costs, court expenses, and state/federal estate taxes. Even individuals with smaller estates can find meaningful benefits in certain situations.
