Wills & Trusts
Many Types of Trusts
There are a variety of different Trusts you can have. The more common two types of Trusts are a Revocable Trust and an Irrevocable Trust. A revocable trust is one that may be amended, modified or revoked during the lifetime of the Grantor. An irrevocable trust is exactly the opposite as it is not able to be amended, modified or revoked.
A Will, most commonly known as a Last Will and Testament should provide clear details of what you want to happen with your property and other issues at the time of your death. One of the primary differences between a Last Will and Testament and a Trust is that property passing under the terms of a last will and testament requires probate to legally transfer to living beneficiaries. Wills become a matter of public record when they’re submitted to the court for probate. The terms of a living trust remain private.
