Tinley Park will attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discusses using a trust to ensure that your estate avoids probate when you pass.
Our Tinley Park trust attorneys explain how trusts are utilized to avoid costly probate cases. Probate becomes necessary when the ownership of real estate assets worth more than $100,000.00 are passed to another party outside of a trust. Probate cases can potentially last a year and could cost up to ten percent of the value of the estate in attorney fees and court costs. Also, while a probate case is ongoing, your loved ones won't have any access to inherited assets until the probate is completed.
Our Tinley Park trust attorneys will assist you in the creation and transfer of assets into the trust so your loved ones can administer and control your estate without entering probate and the need to hire an attorney.
Tinley Park will lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains the appointment of fiduciaries in wills and trusts.
In this article, the differences between wills and trusts is examined. Wills and trusts allow the appointment of an executor that manages your estate when you pass and allows the distribution of assets according to your wishes. Trusts however, have an additional benefit that allows your estate to bypass the costly probate process. Families with minor children typically have both a will and a trust. This allows the appointment of guardians for minor children while a trust only allows the placement of a trustee in charge of the assets until your children reach a certain age or a time that you feel they are able to control the assets themselves.
