Living trusts are one of the best means of planning your estate for your future passing and they are the best way of avoiding the necessity of probate. By drafting a trust, you as the trustor will delegate a trustee to handle your estate while you are living, after your death, or both. This trustee will be responsible for handling your assets, property, and other components of your estate to your benefit during your life, and to the benefit of a pre-designated beneficiary after your death. They will also be responsible for administering your estate to your family and loved ones instead of a probate judge.
Although it may seem as though estate planning, wills and trusts, and other such matters may be unnecessary at this time, it is never too early to get your estate in order.
