MONROE TRUST ATTORNEY
AN EXPERIENCED MONROE TRUST LAW FIRM
A will is a simple written document that allows you to provide for your family after you pass. It goes without saying that having a will is one of the most important things you can do for your family’s security. Our probate and wills attorney can draft a will that provides for the property distribution that you want. More importantly a properly designed will can allow you to select the individuals to care for your minor children.
If you do not have a will the STATE decides who receives your property and if applicable who gets to raise your minor children. If you pass away without a will all the states have a system of laws called intestacy laws that provide for property distribution without a will. By having a will you can make sure exactly who you want receives your property.
Without a will your assets could be tied up for years and your family could suffer greatly because of it. Don’t let that happen to your family. Contact a probate and will attorney with our firm to set up a will today.
A trust is a written agreement also knows as a trust agreement where as a person setting up the trust appoints another individual or entity to manage property placed in or controlled by the trust. These persons are known as trustees. It is their job to administer the assets of the trust according to the directives of the trust agreement. A trust allows an individual to create a structure that allows for them to control their assets after they pass. Many times it is important to create a trust to deal with special needs children, minor children or incapacitated individuals.
A trust can also help you avoid unnecessary and costly probate process in the probate court after you pass. Normally the trust will provide for a distribution of all the trust assets as the trust agreement provides for without going to Court. This can save valuable time and expense on your heirs. It is important to have an experienced probate and trust attorney to draft a trust agreement for you.
