Careful Preparation Of Wills And Trusts
We want to make certain our family and loved ones receive care after we are no longer able to take care of them ourselves.

The Importance Of Having A Will
By creating a valid will, you can control how you wish your estate to be distributed. A will allows you to appoint an executor whom you trust to carry out your wishes. It also allows you to provide direction concerning the care for your children and stepchildren. Finally, a will can provide an inventory of all of your belongings. This prevents finances and assets from becoming abandoned or lost.
The Role That Trusts Can Play
Trusts can also have an important purpose. A testamentary trust used correspondingly with a will can help protect assets from taxation and expense. In certain cases, a trust can also prevent assets from having to go through the expensive probate process. It is also possible to design trusts in order to set aside finances for children with special needs.
