Creating a Will or Trust in Santa Rosa
A skilled estate planning lawyer can help!
Estate planning can be a complicated and even painful process for you and
your loved ones. Certainly no one wants to dwell on the possibility of
a loved one's death, but creating a will or trust is the best way
to ensure that the assets you leave behind go to the people and places
you want. They can ensure a continued lifestyle for spouses, proper care
of family assets, and the best possible future for children.
What are wills and trusts?
A will is an estate planning document to be addressed after your death.
It outlines a number of different measures to be taken concerning your assets:
- Names your beneficiaries
- Decides distribution of assets
- Sets any special conditions (like age requirement for asset release)
- Selects a guardian for any young children
- Picks an executor to see to any final wishes
A trust allows the creator, the grantor, to name an intermediate party,
a trustee, to hold property or assets for a temporary amount of time for
a beneficiary. The grantor can choose any schedule of release of this
property from the trustee to the beneficiary and also decide whether the
trust is alterable (revocable) or set in stone (irrevocable).
Why You Need a Santa Rosa Estate Planning Lawyer
Estate planning can be a complex and emotional process. In the cases where
wills are absent or found to be illegible, ambiguous, or invalid, estates
are left to be distributed according to the California intestate succession
law. That takes the power to pass on your assets away from you and places
it with the state. This can leave to misallocations, rob your loved ones
of what they deserve, and even cause damaging rifts between your family members.
