Establishing an estate plan can be a very important step to protecting your interests and determining who has the legal authority to act on your behalf should something happen. Wills and trusts can help dictate who inherits your assets and how these assets are to be distributed at the time of your passing. Having a will set up is extremely important, as it can ensure your final wishes are followed through the probate process (if necessary) and give clear guidance to your loved ones and family members.

There are several options when it comes to creating trusts. The most common is a living trust, which can help you protect your property from passing through probate (costing time and money). This trust can also be modified and added to at any time, making it very appealing to most individuals crafting their estate plan.
As the trustee of your living trust, you can manage and adjust your property in a living trust at any time. This means you can add assets, adjust how they will be distributed, sell certain valuables, or give away property throughout the course of your life. Once you pass away, then the trust will be passed on to another named trustee for appropriate management and distribution.
