Estate Planning and or Asset Protection
through the strategic use of Trusts.
If you choose NOT to plan your own estate, it will be done for you through the Probate and Estate and Gift Tax systems.
If you do NOT have a plan for your family estate, don’t worry the state does. But you won’t like it! Probate is a state legal hierarchy that distributes your assets according to its terms. If you do not have a Living Trust, then your estate will go through state probate. Your family will find themselves trapped in this ancient and archaic system burdened with delays, red tape, taxes, statutory attorney and executor fees, filing fees and publicity. A Living Trust will avoid all of these possible governmental nightmares.
Protect Your Assets
Asset Protection through the strategic use of Domestic Asset Protection Trusts (DAPT) or International Asset Protection Trusts (IAPT) trusts can place your assets outside the reach of potential creditors. No one ever thinks they will be the one to get sued. But if you do find yourself in a lawsuit, you will quickly realize you cannot get out of one very inexpensively. The United States generates the most litigation in the world! Can you afford not to learn how a trust could protect you and your family?
