Start Your Living Trust

Get started

There are a number of benefits of a living trust, including:

  • Assets do not have to go through probate proceedings to pass to heirs
  • Trusts can be confidential, whereas Wills must be publicized when they pass through probate
  • Individuals have maximum control over their estates
  • Living Trusts can reduce or even prevent estate taxes in many situations
  • Trusts enable an individual to name a trustee who can make decisions about assets in the event of mental or physical incapacitation
  • Assets placed in trust can in many cases be protected from creditors and legal actions
  • You can easily amend your provisions with a simple Living Trust Amendment document
