Estate Planning (FAQ)
  • What is Estate Planning?

    Estate planning is a process involving the counsel of professional advisors who are familiar with your goals and concerns, your assets and how they are owned, and your family structure. It can involve the services of a variety of professionals, including your lawyer, accountant, financial planner, life insurance advisor, banker and broker. Estate planning covers the transfer of property at death as well as a variety of other personal matters and may or may not involve tax planning.

    A family trust is a trust set up to benefit members of your family.

  • Who manages the trust?

    A trust is an agreement in which one person (the "settlor") agrees to transfer property to another (the "trustee") who manages that property for the benefit of someone else (the "beneficiary"). The settlor must legally transfer ownership of the assets to the trustee of the trust.

  • What is a succession?

    All of these matters are addressed by the probate process in the state in which the deceased person lived. Probate is the legal process of administering a deceased person's estate. A decedent's probate estate consists of assets left owned by the decedent in his or her name alone.
