It can be overwhelming to make the decision to begin a process as important as estate planning if you are unsure of what exactly should be included.

It can be complicated to understand all that goes into creating a trust and maintaining it, but our skilled Fresno trust attorneys can explain everything you need to know in a way that you’ll understand, and answer any questions you may have about what happens in the future.

Why Trusts Should Be A Part Of Your Estate Plan

Perhaps the most motivational reason that Americans choose to keep their assets in a trust is that they bypass the troublesome probate process. Probate is notoriously time-consuming, and can last for several months or even longer than a year in some cases. During that time, the wealth of the estate can be seriously depleted due to the expensive costs associated with working with the court. There is also the possibility that will contests or other lawsuits could pop up along the way, throwing a wrench in any progress that has been made up to that point. 

Essentially, probate can be an added stressor for your loved ones in a time when they are already struggling with the grief of losing you. By working with our experienced Fresno attorneys to create a trust, the assets within it can pass directly to your beneficiaries when you pass, thereby avoiding the hassle of probate. Without the need for court involvement, your financial information will also be kept private. Finally, trusts offer protection for your assets from outside sources, like creditors and lawsuits.

How To Determine Which Trust Is Right For You

There are many different kinds of trusts that serve their own unique purposes. Our knowledgeable Fresno trust attorneys will be able to recommend the best trusts for your individual personal and financial goals once they have had a chance to sit down with you and discuss them. Some possibilities might be:

  • Revocable living trust
  • Irrevocable trust
  • Charitable trust
  • Testamentary trust
  • Special needs trust
  • Credit shelter trust
  • And more!
