    Why Create Wills & Trusts

    You Are the Best Judge of Who Gets What

    There is no better judge to decide who can carry your legacy in terms of assets or who may benefit the most from those.

    Wills and trusts ensure that your wishes are carried out and only the designated person gets what you wanted them to have.

    You Don’t Want Family Feuds after you’re Gone

    Property feuds are not uncommon, especially when you leave behind considerable accumulated assets. But common does not mean it is not frustrating for your family.

    With wills & trusts, you leave behind only assets and not feuds

    These Aren’t as Expensive as you Think

    Most people think that hiring a will and trust attorney in Maryland is an exorbitant affair. But they fail to calculate the costs that family will have to incur post death in the absence of a will of a trust.

    That said, even otherwise, you can easily afford one.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. What is the difference between a will and a trust?

    A will is a declaration of a person about how their personal estate will be managed and distributed after they have passed on. A will needs to go through probate post death of the testator.

    A trust, on the other hand, is a legal entity, wherein a trustor grants the authority to a trustee for managing the transferred assets for the beneficiary. The trust does not need to go through probate post death of the trustor.

    2. Should I prefer a trust over a will?

    It is usually better to go for a trust since it not only keeps the transfer process in line but also does not have to go through probate. A will needs to go through probate post the testator’s death, causing frustration and expenses for the family/heirs.

    3. What are living trusts?

    A living trust is a legal document that enables you to place your assets into a trust to be used for your own benefit while you are alive, and later transfer the same to your designated beneficiaries when you die. This is done by your successor trustee (the chosen representative).

    4. What happens if I die without a will?

    In the case of your death without a will, the probate court will execute the distribution of your assets as per the local “intestate succession” laws.

    It is not advisable to leave things to chance, especially if you have considerable accumulated wealth. Talk to one of our will and estate planning attorneys in Maryland and make a well-thought decision. Contact us here.

    5. Can a will be revised once the final draft is done?

    Yes, of course. This can be done as per your will and/or as per the change in laws or life events like marriage and divorce.
