Personalized Legal Services Tailored to Your Unique Needs
A trust enables you to have total control over your wealth and specify exactly how you would like your assets to be handled in the future. There are many types of trusts that you can include in your estate plan, and each is designed to give you complete agency over what happens with your money and when, in this lifetime and beyond.
Whether you want to make sure your children are provided for after you are gone, or you want to learn more about the tax benefits certain trusts offer, our Milwaukee estate planning lawyer is here to assess your situation to help you determine which option best meets your current and future needs.
For more information on how this applies to your estate, contact Krause Estate Planning & Elder Law Center today at (608) 344-5491.
What’s the Difference Between a Revocable Trust & Irrevocable Trust?
Trusts fall into one of two categories: revocable or irrevocable.
Revocable trusts, also known as “living trusts”, are used to establish how your assets will be distributed after you pass away while still allowing you to control the assets during your life. With a revocable trust, you also have the power to dissolve the trust entirely at any point. Most people set up revocable living trusts to help their beneficiaries avoid the lengthy probate process after they die. However, the assets you put into a revocable living trust rust are still subject to estate taxes.
With an irrevocable trust, you can transfer your assets to beneficiaries and protect them from both probate and estate taxes. However, once you establish an irrevocable trust, you lose control over the assets, as well as the power to change or dissolve the trust whenever you want.
We have extensive experience with many types of revocable and irrevocable trusts, including:
- Charitable trusts
- Credit shelter trusts
- Testamentary trusts
- Irrevocable living trusts
- Life Insurance trusts
