Reasons to have a living trust.
A few important questions:
  •  Will my family be devastated by death taxes, court costs, and lawyer fees?
  •  What will happen to my family if I pass away unexpectedly? 
  •  Who will raise our children if my spouse and I both pass away? 
  •  Can I protect my children if they develop special needs or are in an accident after I'm gone? 
  •  Can I appoint someone to manage my affairs if I am incapacitated, but haven't died?
  •  Will I be able to appoint someone I trust to make decisions and manage my affairs after I'm gone?
  •  Can I reduce the risk that my family will fight over their inheritance?
  •  Will my family be forced to go through a protracted public court process, or can I pass them my assets quickly and privately? 
  •  Is there a way to protect my assets from my children's creditors, addiction, bankruptcy, or divorce after I'm gone?
  •  Can I make sure my kids don't receive their inheritance when they are too young? 
If you worry about the answers to any of these questions, you may need a living trust.
Here's why...
A trust is one of the best, simplest, and most commonly used methods for passing assets to your loved ones after you are gone and avoiding financial disaster.
 
Like a will, a trust agreement spells out your directions for managing your property after you pass.
 
You place property into the trust and manage it yourself while you are alive – just as you do now. When you die, a person you’ve chosen will start managing the property according to the strict directions you’ve outlined in the trust.
 
However, unlike a will, a trust avoids the need to go to probate court.
 
It can also be used to reduce death taxes and fees, maintain family privacy, prevent disinheritance, preserve needed benefits, make sure beneficiaries attend college, and protect children from creditors, bankruptcy issues, and substance abuse.

Most of all, it gives you the peace of mind that your loved ones will be taken care of, even after you pass.
Advantages of a living trust
It's a smart way to avoid probate and death tax.
Keep more money in the family by avoiding potentially lengthy and expensive court proceedings and unnecessary taxes.
Your personal and financial matters remain private.
There is no court process, so there is no need to make your assets or your personal wishes public. Most transfers take place in private within weeks instead of over the course of years in probate. 
You maintain control of your finances after you pass.
You can continue to protect your family, even after you're gone: delay distributions until children reach a certain age or graduate; make sure money doesn't fall into the hands of creditors and ex-spouses; & make sure that special needs children still qualify for benefits. 
What happens if I pass without a trust?
The most common devastating results of passing without a trust:
  •  Family forced into probate court, even if you had a will.
  •  Family must publicly declare your assets and their values to the county.
  •  Heirs are accidentally disqualified from needed benefits.
  •  Assets involuntarily end up in the hands of creditors, bankruptcy courts, or ex-spouses.
  •  Easily avoidable taxes, probate fees, court costs and legal fees drain the estate leaving little for your family.
  •  Loved ones are accidentally disinherited.
  •  Drawn out court battles between family. 
  •  Large sums are given to children with substance problems or who are too young or immature to handle them. 
Dying without solidifying a proper trust means your family will have to spend months or years in probate court, even if you have drafted a will. 

Having a will alone is your ticket to probate court. 
Do you really want that for your family? 
Probate court is pricey, protracted, and public. It also means you lose control of all that you have built and place it into the hands of strangers. 
But the good news is, it's EASILY PREVENTABLE!
The future is difficult without a plan...
Most people fail to plan, unaware of the devastating effects it will have on their family ...
We once had a client whose daughter had died without a will or trust. The daughter had 2 young children from a first marriage. When she remarried, she added her new husband to her house and bank account. Sadly, she was in a car accident which unexpectedly took her life.
Because of her failure to properly plan, the second husband received nearly everything. Her 2 young children were entirely disinherited – they did not receive a penny.

Worst of all, her parents had to fight in court for years trying to obtain guardianship of the children. It was a completely avoidable tragedy.

When you do plan, you have to be sure that it is done right…

We had another client whose brother had downloaded a pre-fab “form” will off of the internet. Unfortunately, the “will” had not been reviewed by an attorney and wasn’t considered legally valid. The client had to spend 3 and a half years (and tens of thousands of dollars) fighting off legal challenges and trying to prove his brother’s intentions to the court. 

As part of the probate process we were forced to declare his assets to the court. When creditors and estranged relatives saw the size of the estate, they began filing claims. 
Even worse, the brother had never updated his life insurance. His ex-wife (whom he had not spoken to in years) received a multi-million dollar pay day. What was left of the estate was gobbled up by filing costs, legal bills, and “inventory fees” (a fancy word for taxes). Almost nothing was left for the man’s beneficiaries – a sadly common scenario. 
Just getting assets to your children is not enough…
We also handled a case where a father was in an accident with his two sons. The father was killed instantly. The youngest son suffered severe handicaps. Half of the father’s property went to the youngest son disqualifying him from desperately needed medical benefits. The remainder of the property went to the older son who was not ready for the responsibility and dropped out of school. 
The saddest part of ALL of these stories is that they are preventable with very SIMPLE planning. 
 With some simple planning, you can make sure your family is secure...
