Do I Need a Trust?

One of the most common questions is “Do I need a trust, or just a will?”  To get the best answer, call for a free 15 minute consultation so we can discuss your goals and develop a plan for you.  

WHAT IS A TRUST? A trust is an entity that can legally hold title to assets like a house or a bank account.  It is managed by a Trustee, which is someone who is obligated to care for and use the money for the benefit of the people listed in the trust.  Trusts outlive their creators and can be helpful if you want to ensure distribution of your assets over a longer period of time. 

Most people ask for a trust so that they can avoid probate.  However, probate in Colorado is not very scary, unlike many other states.  For that reason, usually a normal estate plan with a will is enough for most families.  But sometimes a will is right for you.
