Revocable Living Trust

Wills, Trusts, and Estates

A Living Trust is often referred to as a Revocable Trust.  The primary reason for establishing a Trust is to avoid probate.  Probate is the court-supervised process of proving a Will and distributing the assets of the deceased according to that Will.  The probate process becomes public record, can be lengthy, time consuming and expensive.  Unlike a Will, a Living Trust is the best way to avoid probate and protect your privacy.  Generally, the assets held in your Trust at your death will escape probate and remain a private concern.
