What Kinds Of Trusts Do We Create?

Our skilled Hoover attorneys understand how each type of trust benefits your strategic estate plan, and which trust to use depending upon the circumstances. After evaluating your assets, we can advise you on transferring property into:

  • Revocable trusts, commonly referred to as living trusts. Property placed in a revocable trust is exempt from the probate process.
  • Irrevocable trusts that cannot be modified after creation.
  • Asset protection trusts that prevent creditors from accessing your property.
  • Charitable trusts that gift property to a chosen charity or to the public. This protects your donation from taxation, and provides you with financial benefits during your life.
  • Special needs trusts that allow you to set aside assets for the care of a loved one who receives government benefits. This ensures that they retain their eligibility for government aid, and allows you to provide for their medical, education and financial needs.

Each type of trust is accompanied by unique conditions, and provides different benefits to you and your beneficiaries. Our meticulous attorneys will carefully evaluate your estate and help you determine which trust can best secure your assets.
