Probate Sounds Important, Why Would I Want to Avoid It?

Not everyone does. Some people have simple estates that may go through probate smoothly. Others just don’t care. Often, though, probate has numerous potential disadvantages that a lot of people prefer to avoid. These disadvantages include cost, delay, publicity, control and hassle.

How Can a Living Trust Save on Estate Taxes?

The living trust may include provisions which serve to reduce or eliminate federal estate taxes for married couples. This is done by ensuring that both available marital tax credits are utilized. This means that, married couples may pass up to $10.9 million (2016) free of the federal estate tax.

Is There a Lot of Expense in Setting up a Living Trust?

Generally, a living trust is more expensive than a will. However, because a living trust avoids probate, there are few costs associated with settling the trust. This allows for the costs to be known up front. While a will may be less expensive initially, the estate will incur probate costs, such as attorney fees and other expenses, which should also be considered.
