Personalized legal advice is essential as you explore the idea of a setting up a trust. I am estate planning lawyer Michael K. Ruberg, ready to listen as you explain your legacy goals.

Trusts

I can provide guidance as you create one or more of these types of trusts:

  • A living trust
  • A revocable trust
  • An irrevocable trust
  • A charitable remainder trust
  • A special needs trust

The type of trust you create will depend on your legacy objectives. It will also depend on the complexity of your asset portfolio. You and your estate planning lawyer can discuss options for creating trusts that will meet your needs.

Funding The Trust

Once you set up a trust, you need to "fund the trust." You need to maintain it for it to work as it should. You may need to retitle your home. The trust can become the owner of your bank accounts and other assets. If you do this correctly, the trustee will be able to take control of your assets after you pass away.

Estate planning is one of life's greatest bargains. A trust can keep estate administration simple. You may save your family thousands of dollars and much time and effort through careful estate planning.
