How Do Trusts Benefit Your Estate Plan?

Many people believe that having a will is a “good enough” form of estate planning, but unfortunately, a will does not provide the level of asset protection that a trust can. With only a will, your estate will still need to go through the complex California probate process, which can take anywhere from months up to a year! All the while, the costs and fees associated with probate are being drained from the funds you planned to leave to your loved ones in their inheritance.

Probate also leaves a large gap of time for problematic legal complications to arise, like will contests and lawsuits. If you pass with your assets in a trust, then your family’s inheritances can be seamlessly and almost instantly transferred to them as you intended. Additionally, with no need to involve the court, your personal and financial affairs can remain private. Our experienced Bakersfield trust attorneys can help ensure that your last wishes are followed according to the terms of your trust!

How Can Our Bakersfield Trust Attorneys Help You Make Empowered Decisions About Your Future?

There are a lot of options when it comes to which type of trust to create, which is why our Bakersfield trust attorneys take the time to get to the root of your goals. Why do you want your assets secured in a trust? To simply avoid probate? To maximize your tax benefits? To qualify for Medicaid? To plan the succession of your business? Not every individual’s reason for creating a trust is the same, so it’s an important piece of the puzzle to figure out.

Some examples of different kinds of trusts are:

  • Revocable living trust
  • Irrevocable trust
  • Generation-skipping trust
  • Charitable trust
  • Special needs trust
  • Bypass trust
  • Testamentary trust
  • And more!
