About Making Wills & Trusts
A Last Testament and Will (generally referred to as a “Will”) is a commonly used estate planning document to make your wishes known when you pass on. Wills may be very basic or extremely complex, depending upon the wishes and assets of the person executing the will (Testator/Testatrix).
An inter vivos trust is an estate planning document which creates a vehicle to receive and administer property once property is transferred into the trust. It is created during the lifetime of the person creating it and may be either revocable (known as Grantor’s trust) or irrevocable, depending upon the reason for its creation. Estate tax concerns are generally limited to individuals with assets over $5,000,000. If you anticipate that your estate may be in excess of that amount by the time of your death, estate planning is extremely important in order to protect your assets.
