El Dorado Hills, CA Will And Trust Lawyer
We know that planning for a future that you won’t be a part of can be a difficult pill to swallow. However, even if you’re young or are in perfect health, tomorrow is never guaranteed and you might not have the luxury of time on your side to put off something this important. Creating a will and trust is an essential step in ensuring your legacy will remain intact after you’re gone. These legal tools can help protect everything you’ve worked so hard for, and also guarantee that your family has clarity about your wishes for your assets, property, and minor children if you have them.
In the unfortunate event that you pass away or become incapacitated, if your affairs are in disarray, your loved ones will be left with confusion and financial jeopardy in the midst of the emotional turmoil of a loss. We can help keep that from happening. Call Equal Justice Law Group today to schedule a free consultation with our El Dorado Hills will and trust lawyer to learn about your next steps.
Types Of Wills & Trusts
Last will & testament – documents that communicate one’s final wishes for their assets in the event of their death.
Pour-over will – ensures a person’s remaining assets will immediately transfer to a trust at the time of their death.
Joint will – one will shared by two people, typically a married couple.
Living will – a written document that states your wishes for medical care in the event that you become incapacitated.
Revocable trust – a legal arrangement that has flexibility and gives someone the ability to make decisions about someone else’s assets held in a trust.
Irrevocable trust – details how you’d like your assets to be distributed to beneficiaries and does not offer the same flexibility as a revocable trust in that it cannot be changed once created.
Special needs trust – a trust that is created to provide funding for children or family members with special needs or disabilities while still maintaining their eligibility for public benefits like SSI and Medicaid.
Benefits Of Wills & Trusts
Wills and trusts are important legal tools that can help you clarify how you want assets and property distributed, as well as who you’d like to name as a guardian to any minor children you have. If you don’t make these decisions, the state of California will do it for you. In which case, the things that you’ve worked hard for and matter most to you might end up in the wrong hands.
A trust, in particular, is an especially important tool that will prevent your family from having to go through the stressful, time-consuming, and expensive process of probate.
