The Various Types of Trusts in California
Creating a Trust? Call Our Los Angeles Trust Attorney
Trusts are legal instruments that allow you to place your property and other assets into the trust, so they are protected. Trusts can shield your property from excessive taxes when you die. They can also provide a structure within which you can detail how you want your assets to be distributed to your beneficiaries upon your death. There are many different types of trusts for different purposes. For example, a special needs trust can enable a disabled loved one to continue to receive financial assistance without disqualifying them from government benefits, and a living trust can ensure that your property will still be managed the way you specified if you become incapacitated.
