Among the more common types of trusts she will help you review include:
- Living trusts in which your assets are managed by a trustee. This estate planning tool allows you to manage your assets while still alive. Through this trust, you can avoid probate.
- Revocable trusts in which you can change the terms of the trust whenever you want to. One drawback is assets in them are not protected from creditors.
- Irrevocable trusts in which the terms can be changed. Such assets are protected from some creditors.
- Special needs trusts for families with children who have physical or developmental disabilities. These trusts provide money for disabled children after their parents have died. One should have a minimum of $100,000 in them.
- Charitable trusts are ideal estate planning tools that benefit charities and people.
- Perpetual trusts are supposed to last forever and can provide legacies such as college loans or help preserve real estate and business entities.
