Creating A Custom Plan For Your Family With Wills And Trusts
Wills and trusts are the backbone of your estate plan. They dictate the future of your assets and property after you have passed away. When well done, they can help ensure stability for your family and protect the legacy you spent your entire life creating.

What A Will Can Do For Your Family
Wills are easier to create and more important to have than many people realize. In addition to passing on your possessions and assets, a will can determine what happens to your pets, name guardians for your children and name who should manage your assets after your death, among other things. Furthermore, a will is simple to write and may be finished in only a few days. Speak to an attorney about your goals, and they can help ensure that your will is thorough and legally sound.
How A Trust Can Help You
When you have a trust, a trustee is appointed to control your assets after you have passed away. Within your trust, you may dictate many more things than you can in a will. For example, in a will you cannot usually provide conditions that must be met before something can be inherited. In a trust, however, you can. There are many different types of trusts, and each one plays a specific role in providing for your family. Some trusts protect assets for beneficiaries with special needs, some protect property and some contribute to charities. An experienced lawyer can help you determine what is right for you and your family.

Both wills and trusts are tools you can use to create a comprehensive plan for your estate after you pass away. However, you don’t need to wait until the end of your life to create one. Tragedy can strike at any moment, and even if you have few assets at the time of your death, an estate plan can provide guidance and comfort to your family during their grieving period.
