Trust Law

A trust is an agreement that establishes a relationship between two people: a trustor, sometimes called the grantor, and a trustee. Trusts are utilized by individuals to transfer assets from themselves to a final recipient, known as a beneficiary.

Bypassing The Probate Process

One of the main benefits of utilizing trusts is that a trust can bypass the probate process. The probate process accounts for the assets of a person who has passed. This process involves the use of a last will and testament, the division of assets, and payment of debts. Assets that are in a trust are held outside of the probate process and transfer directly to the beneficiary. All trusts can be broken into two categories: revocable and irrevocable trusts.

Revocable Trusts

Revocable trusts are the more flexible form of a trust. Revocable trusts can be altered or even terminated by the grantor right up until the grantor is incapacitated or dead. While revocable trusts are able to be changed, they can also sometimes be difficult to argue that the assets are distinct from the general assets that fall into the probate process.

Irrevocable Trusts

An irrevocable trust is the more rigid form of trust. An irrevocable trust is set in stone from the time that it is written and cannot be changed or revoked. However, assets in an irrevocable trust will always be counted as distinct from probate assets.
