Preparing Wills And Trusts For Families And Individuals

The Cornerstone Of An Effective Estate Plan

Passing on the property you have earned over a lifetime is one of the key functions of an estate plan. Wills and trusts are two of the most common ways to pass assets from one person to another. In order to achieve their desired result, a will or a trust must meet many legal requirements.

All too often, people attempt to create their own estate planning documents. Many times, these documents are unclear or do not meet statutory requirements. The cost and delay associated with resolving these situations can be very problematic. For these and other reasons, it is critical to work with an experienced estate planning lawyer. From our office in Fountain Valley, we at Rogers, MacLeith & Stolp, LLP help families and individuals across Orange County and beyond with their estate planning needs.

Creating Documents That Meet Your Needs Now And In The Years To Come

Depending on your specific circumstances, a will or a trust may be in your best interests. If you need a will, our attorneys will take care to create a document that meets all requirements under California law. On the other hand, if your main estate planning goal is to avoid probate, a trust is likely the best option. Any assets placed in a trust will be managed by the successor trustee upon your death and distributed to your heirs without going through the expense and time associated with probate. Our law firm prepares all types of trusts, including:

  • Living trusts
  • Revocable and irrevocable trusts
  • Testamentary trusts
  • Special needs trusts

Once we prepare your trust, our work is not finished. We will take appropriate steps to make sure you properly fund the trust. While a trust is right for many people, it is not the right choice for everyone.
