Trusts And Estate Planning
Choosing to administer your estate through either a trust or a will is a very personal choice. There are advantages and disadvantages to both options. There are also specific and unique concerns that are better handled through a trust, including the care of a disabled child, protecting minor beneficiaries and asset protection. Trusts are also many times the preferred solution when used in conjunction with estate tax planning. Not everyone needs a trust. Our lawyers will take the time to carefully examine your estate and objectives. We will make estate planning recommendations that are geared toward honoring your wishes, protecting your assets and reducing unnecessary risk to your heirs.
Avoiding Probate In Chicago
Administering your estate through a trust will allow your estate to avoid probate. In most cases, trust administration will eliminate the need for court proceedings and make the administration process entirely private. A trust is also more difficult to contest than a will, making a potential court case less likely.
