Creating a trust for your family

The most common questions asked is, "what is a trust?" A trust is a legal entity which hold your assets - money, land, real estate, etc. - for your benefit while you are alive. A trust will then be used for the benefit of your heirs after your death.

A trust is controlled by a Trustee. While you are able to make all your decision, the Trustee is you. However, that is not always the case and in some instances another person, whom you have named, can serve as the Trustee of your estate.

At the time of your death, your trust controls all of your assets, and your assets will not have to proceed through the probate courts prior to distribution. Instead of having your loved ones wait months, or even years, before your assets will be distributed in accordance with your wishes, a trust will allow your estate to settle in a manner of days or weeks.
