A revocable living trust is a living document you create during your lifetime to protect your home and other valuables and determine who gets those items and where those items go. A living trust attorney will help you set up this trust to administer your estate and protect your beneficiaries. As an estate planning attorney in Rancho Cucamonga, Heather Lynn Law Firm is available for you to help set up your living trust.
A living trust is “revocable” because you can change it during your lifetime and you alone are the creator and the one in sole power of making those changes. It is your document until death and it becomes binding upon your death, therefore protecting you and your beneficiaries, making sure your wishes for after-death planning are followed through with.
A living trust avoids probate, so no court involvement is needed and no attorneys are necessary, thereby avoiding the stress and cost that comes with probate.
