Estate Planning

Probate Attorney Denver

Revocable Living Trusts Lawyer

In the most common estate planning context, the focus is on revocable living trusts. Many people believe a trust is a complicated legal arrangement suitable only for those with extreme wealth. On the contrary, a trust is simply a private agreement between you (the trust maker) and a trustee regarding how you would like your property to be distributed in the event of your incapacity or death. It functions much like a will, but offers greater flexibility and confidentiality.

There are numerous types of trusts. Each can be used to accomplish particular goals or structure specific distributions. It is best to speak with an attorney about what type of trust will best fit your goals.

Why Consider A Trust in Estate Planning?

A revocable living trust offers various benefits. For example, through a trust, you can:

  • Maintain confidentiality because your assets will be distributed according to the private terms of the trust rather than through the public probate process
  • Potentially avoid probate, a court process that can be lengthy, complicated and expensive
  • Prepare for the possibility of incapacity or disability
  • Preserve inheritances for children or adults with special needs
  • Prevent your property from being wasted by imposing specific conditions on its distribution

Depending on your circumstances, one type of trust — called a revocable living trust — can serve as a foundation for a comprehensive estate plan. As its name indicates, you can establish this type of trust and serve as its trustee during your lifetime. You can retain control over your property and make any alterations you see fit.

However, if you become incapacitated or when you pass away, the trust will govern the protection and distribution of your assets under the terms you established. Thus, you can rest assured that your wishes will remain intact.
