Everyone needs an estate plan. Planning ahead is not just for the very wealthy or the elderly. Life can change or end suddenly. Having a plan in place can substantially lessen the burden on surviving or healthy family members. A last will and testament with the various healthcare documents gives directions to the court and your beneficiaries and heirs about how you want your assets distributed. A living trust does that and more. A living trust also includes mechanisms so that if someone is incapacitated, the successor trustee can step in and take control of a person's assets and affairs. In addition, a living trust is an effective tool to avoid probate, and allows the distribution of assets without the court's involvement.
