Sean Robertson is the Principal of Gateville Law Firm and he concentrates his practice in the areas of estate planning and living trust. As a skilled estate planning and asset protection attorney, Attorney Robertson understands how estate planning applies to real life situations and families.
What is a Living Trust?
A Living Trust is also known as a “Declaration of Trust” or “Revocable Living Trust”. A Living Trust is a legal instrument that designates who shall manage one’s affairs and how one’s assets shall be distributed upon one’s death or incapacity.
A Living Trust has several advantages over a Last Will. The first advantage is probate avoidance. Probate court is a court which determines heirship and how assets shall be distributed upon a loved one’s death (when they do not have an estate plan).
Additionally, many people falsely assume that a written last will and testament avoids probate court. A last will and testament must be probated and go through the court process. Our Yorkville Living Trust Attorney can counsel you and your loved ones on your estate planning and financial goals.
