Your trust is the foundation of your estate plan.  Putting your assets in trust is the most effective way to avoid the expensive and time-consuming probate process.  You can protect your estate from the ordeal of probate and empower a trustee of your choice to manage your assets after your passing without court supervision.  Different aspects and types of trusts include:

  • Living trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Irrevocable life insurance trust (ILIT)
  • Qualified personal residence trust (QPRT)
  • Stretched IRA beneficiary trustQualified domestic trust (QRT)
  • Charitable remainder trust
