Wills & Trusts
A Will is a document created to direct the distribution of assets at the time of death. Without a Will assets will be subject to the laws of intestacy of Virginia, which will also direct the decision of what will happen to the assets. Wills are especially important to have for people with minor children, non-marital children or those that are in second marriages.
A Trust is a document which can go into effect during your lifetime that can be a private arrangement that you make to give legal holding of property to another person or persons. There are many types of Trusts, such as revocable, irrevocable, testamentary, “Medicaid qualifying”, Pooled Income, or Supplemental Needs Trusts. Each type is a separate and distinct document which is tailor-made to the grantor’s (the one who funds the trust) wishes.
Avoid Probate With a Trust
If you use a Will instead of a Trust, your assets will go through probate court. Probate is time-consuming and can be expensive. It’s also part of the public record, so your beneficiaries will not be able to maintain their privacy. This can add to the stress of an already difficult time.
You can save time and money by using a trust. Trusts are not subject to probate. Your loved ones will receive property faster, and they can maintain their privacy. Avoiding probate is one of the numerous benefits of including a trust in your estate plan.
