The Intricacies of Trusts and Estate Planning
Navigating through all the ins and outs of trusts and estate planning can be very difficult, but it is vitally important for you, your family, and your business to do so.
There are many kinds of trusts, including spendthrift trusts, testator’s trusts, inter-vivo trusts, and charitable trusts. Some trusts protect the assets of a child to a certain age of maturity. There are also trusts to protect the property and assets of a special needs child or adult.
Estate planning can also be very complex. It involves much more than just a last will and testament. It can help resolve many elder law issues that come with incapacity or death. Planning can distribute assets, create testamentary trusts, allocate personal property, prevent unwanted tax consequences, and solve guardianship issues. It can also include healthcare directives like living wills and powers of attorney. When you decide to set these up, you need an attorney who fully understands the intricacies of trusts and estate planning.
Trusts and Estate Planning Are Important, Let Us Help
If someone dies without an estate plan, the Commonwealth of Virginia will decide the disposition of their assets under the intestate succession law. The state may not transfer assets where desired, and the law does nothing for asset protection. It may also cause negative tax consequences.
