Revocable Living Trusts
Revocable living trusts are used by many California residents to protect them from hardship while they are alive and to avoid having their estate be subject to probate. Any estate worth more than $100,000 may be subject to probate with a properly documented estate plan. Probate means a court will be involved in determining how your assets are distributed after death. Court means expense, delay and public disclosure of the value of your estate. A revocable living trust properly filed by an experienced San Jose estate planning attorney can help avoid unnecessary expense and protect your privacy.
A revocable living trust typically involved multiple parties including a settlor, trustee and beneficiaries. You may act as both settlor and trustee or you may appoint someone else as trustee. The trustee will make sure that your wishes are followed and you are provided for should you become unable to care for yourself or manage your estate. Upon death, the trustee will promptly distribute assets to the beneficiaries. A properly documented revocable living trust can result in a relatively fast and smooth carrying out of your final wishes.
