A trust can be a powerful tool for anyone who is planning their estate. Estate planning is a process of determining where your asses will go after death, who will make sure your wishes are met, and organizing how to achieve each one of your other goals. Trusts are a key component of this because they act as their own legal identity, allowing you to gain a bit more control over them.
Why Should You Use Trusts?
When you meet with our Chester County and Delaware County, PA trust attorneys, you will learn if they can help you. By establishing a trust, it may be possible to protect some of your assets within it, reducing the amount of assets that must pass through probate court. This can help you, for example, minimize loss of assets you wish to pass to your child, grandchild, a charity, or another organization. Trusts offer a number of benefits:
- They protect your assets from excessive taxes.
- You can make decisions over how the funds within them are used.
- Trusts minimize the risks of probate court.
