The Simone Law Firm understands that estate planning can be complicated and overwhelming. That’s why our goal is to help clients navigate through each step of the estate planning process.
Here are some ways we can help:
What’s better: a will or a trust?
Wills and trusts are different documents. They have different purposes, so neither item is necessarily better or worse than the other. Wills state how you want your assets divided once you’ve passed away. They can also include information about guardians. Trusts allow you to give money to a particular person once you pass away. However, a third party, the trustee, controls the assets in a trust.
Do I really need an estate planning attorney?
While you aren’t required to hire an estate planning attorney, doing so can be beneficial. Estate plans can be complex and often time-consuming to create. A lawyer will help you navigate this process so that it’s simple and intuitive. Finally, experienced estate planning lawyers will ensure your plan is implemented correctly and lasts for years to come.
What’s the difference between a revocable trust and an irrevocable trust?
A revocable trust is a trust that you can change. These types of trusts are helpful because you can update them as your needs evolve. Meanwhile, you cannot change an irrevocable trust once it’s finalized.
The Simone Law Firm wants to help clients protect what matters most to them: their families. Through estate planning, you can secure your assets, including physical property and money, to secure your and your family’s future.
