Orange County Estate Planning Attorney Jim Roberts Explains Including Pets in Your Trust
Have You Protected Your Pets in Your Trust?
When most people think about their estate plan they think about children possibly brothers and sisters, even nieces and nephews, but they need to remember their animals. It is absolutely essential that you think about putting your pets in your trust.
A lot of our clients want to make sure that their animals go to someone who will love and care for them and they will not be put to sleep. Let me share a personal situation, my wife is a veterinarian in Orange County and she has seen what happens when people don’t properly plan for pets. For this reason we are adding information onto our site about what you can do to protect your beloved pets. There are special trusts can be set up and special provisions that can be added to trusts to help you ensure that your pets are cared for and protected. Should you have any questions about making sure you have protected your pets then give our office a call and set up an appointment to talk with someone. Contact us today and set up an appointment.
