Administration of a Trust
California families are opting, now more than ever, to establish a revocable living trust to help determine the disposition of assets upon incapacity or death of the creators of the trust. Revocable trusts can be used to help with:
- Possibly minimizing estate taxes
- Providing an orderly disposition of finances and property
- Avoiding the costs or delays associated with formal probate proceedings
- Handling matters during times of incapacity
