If you have property that you wish to leave to your family when you have passed, establishing a trust in your name may be the perfect estate planning option. Doing so can ensure that your final wishes are carried out and save your loved ones a great deal of time, financial cost, and emotional stress during a difficult period. At Leger Law Group, LLC, our Baton Rouge estate planning attorney has the necessary experience, skills, and resources to help you create this legal document and designate how your estate will be distributed.
Trusts offer several advantages above and beyond what wills offer. They allow you to avoid the costly and public process of probate, which is a legal process used to validate or “prove” a will. Trusts also offer more portability than wills, so your estate plan will be enforceable wherever you move. Our Baton Rouge estate planning lawyer is able to help you create both revocable and irrevocable living trusts, and can ensure the specifics of this document adequately represent your unique wishes.
