Drafting Trusts That Fulfill Your Specific Needs and Goals
Placing valuable assets in a trust takes them out of your estate — and eliminates the requirement that they go through the time-consuming probate process. The most common trusts are revocable trusts, which means that you maintain full control over them until your death, when one or more trustees are charged with ensuring the terms of the trust are observed and enforced. You may also choose to have court oversight of your trust.
Trusts of various types can fulfill a wide range of your estate planning goals, including:
- Protecting your assets against excessive taxation, often as part of a comprehensive plan to preserve wealth for your children and successive generations
- Designating significant assets for costly future needs, such as college education expenses
- Ensuring that substantial assets remain invested and grow well into the future while allowing periodic and measured distribution to your heirs
