TYPES OF ESTATE ADMINSTRATION
IT IS MANDATORY TO HAVE A STRUCTURED ESTATE PLAN.
Family Allowances. Probate Issues. Wills. Trusts. The list goes on. As the regulatory and legal environment is exceptionally fluid and dynamic, you want to determine how each of this subject matters interact with one another and how best to start compiling your plan.
START WITH THE ESSENTIALS:
Both a Will and Living Trust have their strengths and weaknesses and really need to be drawn up based on your goals for the beneficaries, provide the peace of mind with the law inferefing with your wishes and give you the anomoyti that some individuals and families desire to shield themselves from prying eyes of 3rd parties.
QUICK BREAKDOWN OF WILLS AND LIVING TRUSTS
WILLS: You are laying the foundations for instructions to your heirs on what you would like to be done when you’re deceased. The issues surrounding your wishes will go into probate in some cases and be subject to court costs and legal fees.
TRUSTS: Trusts are the founding building blocks to sold estate planning as they allow for flexibility while you’re still alive. While creating a plan that brings your assets and resources under one roof, you gain the control without court inference.
