Understanding The Difference Between Wills and Trusts
Depending on your needs and preferences, an estate plan can be simple or complex. But nearly every plan for an estate is built using the two most important tools in estate planning law: wills and trusts. It’s possible to write a will without establishing a trust, or vice versa, but these two tools work best when used together.
A will is a formal statement of your wishes after you are gone, and this alone is a valuable source of guidance for your loved ones when the time comes for your estate to pass on to others. But a will is just a statement of preferences; it cannot hold funds or directly transfer them to the parties you choose. That is the value of a trust, which functions more like a specialized kind of bank account. A trust can actually hold funds, which makes it easier to transfer them when the need arises. And trusts can be tailored to meet your specific needs, which will allow you exactly the amount of control you desire in order to manage issues like asset protection, tax planning and more.
We will help you identify the estate planning instruments best suited to your specific situation.
