Estate planning for life and death with trusts

Estate planning is often viewed as something that is only useful after death. Trusts in particular are considered good for avoiding probate, but the potential of these powerful estate tools is often underrated. People in California can use trusts to ensure that their assets are protected both in life and afterwards.

Are living trusts useful during asset distribution?

Most estate plans usually include many different documents. A last will and testament, health care directives and various trusts all come together to create the most comprehensive plan possible, providing guidance for both end-of-life care and how an estate should be handled after a person's death. Living trusts can be incredibly useful for most people in California, especially during asset distribution.

Don't forget about Spot: Protect your animals in your estate plan

Pet owners in California understand that their four-legged friends are more than just animals -- they are family. For how much love most people shower on their beloved pets, many fail to adequately prepare for their future care. A comprehensive estate plan can provide necessary instructions and finances for a pet after his or her owner has passed away.

California attorney assists with trust administration

When people in California create a trust, they likely do so to ensure that their estate is distributed according to their wishes. In order for this to happen, they name someone to help facilitate trust administration. However, those with little experience administering a trust can easily become overwhelmed as they attempt to understand their duties and authority and try to ensure that all necessary paperwork is completed in a timely manner.

Errors made when administering a trust can hurt the trustee

Being responsible for a trust is no small thing. A trustee's role when administering a trust is significant and can be met with severe consequences if anything is done inappropriately. Those in California who are left with this responsibility need to know what exactly their role is and what they can do to protect themselves should anything go wrong.
