Revocable Living Trust Package $950
A will may not be the best plan for you and your family as a will does not avoid probate when you die. A will must be validated by the probate court before it can be enforced.
A will can only go into effect after you die, it provides no protection if you become physically or mentally incapacitated. So the court could easily take control of your assets before you die.
There is a simple and proven alternative to a will; the revocable living trust. It avoids probate and lets you keep control of your assets while you are living if you become incapacitated, and after you die.
When you set up a living trust, you transfer assets from your name to the name of your trust, which you control. Legally you no longer own anything as everything now belongs to your trust. So there is nothing for the courts to control when you die or become incapacitated.
You still keep full control of your estate. As a trustee of your trust, you can do anything you could do before -- buy and sell assets, change or even cancel your trust. That's why it's called a revocable living trust. You even file the same tax returns. Nothing changes but the names on the titles.
