When it comes to trusts, choose trustees wisely

When estate planning, it can sometimes seem as if there are more questions than answers. However, asking certain questions can help California residents ensure that they make the best choices for their plans. For example, individuals utilizing trusts as part of their plans may want to ask certain questions before choosing trustees.

Trusts, other planning tools can accomplish charitable giving

Many California residents have giving attitudes and hearts. They want to help others as much as they can, especially in charitable capacities. For some individuals, continuing that giving after their passing may be a desired goal. Fortunately, there are various ways that parties can use trusts and other estate planning tools to address charitable giving.

Corporate trustees could manage trusts without bias

When considering the many tools available to create an estate plan, some California residents may wonder whether they need more than a will. While a will certainly is a useful and essential estate planning document, other tools can help make a plan more comprehensive. For example, trusts can have many uses and offer asset protection that wills cannot. Of course, some parties may worry about who to put in charge of a trust, but luckily, the answer could be easy.

Testamentary trusts can help account for specific issues

It is fortunate that there are so many options available when it comes to estate planning. In particular, the versatility of trusts can help California residents ensure that their exact wishes are followed after their passing. For some individuals, the use of a testamentary trust could allow them that sense of security.

Funding trusts is a crucial step in the estate-planning process

After San Jose residents spend a substantial amount of time thinking about, creating and executing an estate plan, they often hope that is the end of the process so they can stop thinking about it. For many of the documents included in an estate plan, that could be the case. However, when it comes to trusts, the work is not done after one is created.

Trustees manage the assets kept in trusts

When California residents want to use their estate plans to protect their assets, they have multiple options they could use to do so. In particular, they could utilize trusts to remove assets from the estate and into the ownership of the trusts. Of course, someone also needs to be appointed to manage the assets.

Individuals may want to incorporate charitable trusts into plans

Many California residents want to find ways to give back during their lives. They may make donations during the year or volunteer or carry out a number of other actions to help the community or otherwise contribute. For some, the desire to create a legacy or continue to help may be so great that they want to arrange to continue the giving even after they are gone. Fortunately, charitable trusts may be able to help accomplish that.

Each person has his or her own ideas of what to include in an estate plan. For many, utilizing trusts can offer them the privacy and asset protection they desire. This planning tool may not be as obvious as creating a will, but it can benefit California residents looking to make their plans.

Living trusts must be funded for full operational effect

Trusts are often a key element in one's estate plan in California and elsewhere. After reviewing one's financial situation with an experienced estate planning attorney, a plan will be agreed on that may include testamentary and/or living trusts.
