Assisting Scott County Residents With All Their Estate Planning Needs

Suppose you need a will to protect your new family or a trust-based estate plan to protect your assets and preserve your wealth. That’s where Unique Estate Law comes in. We regularly prepare a host of foundational estate planning documents:

A will is the cornerstone of a well-conceived estate plan that determines how your assets will be managed and distributed after your death, names an estate administrator or executor, designates a guardian to care for your minor children, and allows you to establish a testamentary trust for their benefit. 

At the same time, a will must go through a probate proceeding, which can be costly and time-consuming depending on the size of your estate. That’s why we recommend establishing various trusts.

For example, you can transfer your property to a revocable living trust but continue managing it during your lifetime. The trust assets will transfer to your beneficiaries without probate when you pass. Notably, all trusts must go through an administrative phase to carry out their terms.

Another option is an irrevocable trust, which cannot be modified, altered, or revoked. Irrevocable trusts can serve several different purposes, such as:

Importantly, irrevocable trusts avoid probate and safeguard your assets from estate taxes and creditors’ claims.
