When is a Trust a Good Idea?

Posted on March 4th, 2011 No Comments

When navigating through all the legal jargon of trusts and wills, it can be difficult to understand the differences between the two and decide which one is best for you.

Wills and trusts have a few important distinctions. The most important thing to know is that, while trusts are initially more expensive to create than wills, they could save your family huge amounts of money in probate litigation costs. This is because trusts cannot have probate proceedings that occur when a will is challenged. Trusts cannot be challenged, so you can be sure that your assets will go to the people you had intended.

Also, trusts can be put into effect while you are alive. If you wanted to allocate a specific amount of money to a loved one during your lifetime, that would be possible with a trust.
