Mr. Sanders was awesome! Very informative, very helpful. He made sure to stay in contact with me throughout my divorce. Would definitely recommend this law firm.
I just recommended them to a coworker today. I've also recommended them to my friend and mother in the past after they handled our case in 2010.
Great Attorney, Mr. Sanders knows his stuff.
Trusts Vs. Wills
There may be benefits to creating a trust, especially if you have assets in multiple states, minor children, or adult children with special needs. There are several types of trusts to meet your unique needs. Because a trust becomes effective during your lifetime, however, it is more complex than a will and must meet several requirements to ensure you get the benefits of the trust. Generally, this document remains confidential, but it is more expensive to prepare than a will. Contact us to discuss whether a trust is the right choice for you.
A will does not take effect until after you die, and the will is admitted to probate. And, yes, once probated, the will does become public. However, drafting a will is simpler and is less costly than preparing a living trust. Reach out to learn more and schedule a consultation.
Get the Help You Need
There are a few distinct differences between trusts and wills. Both legal-binding documents instruct your family on the intentions of your assets and property after your death.
