Will Lawyer for Brecksville, Ohio Residents

Wills are extremely important for every adult.  All adults should have a Will.  All parents should have a Will. Even the most basic estate plans include Wills.

Purpose of a Will:

The purpose of a Will is to do the following. (1) direct what should happen to your assets upon your death, (2) identify who should manage and distribute your estate, and (3) identify who should be appointed as the guardian of your children.  Of course a Will has many other provisions, but these are the most important to most people.

Limitations of a Will:

A standard Will has severe limitations. Generally, a Will calls for a one time lump sum payment to the heirs. A Will also does not avoid probate court.  Avoiding probate court is one of the best advantages of a Trust, but not available through a Will.

Trust Lawyer in Brecksville, Ohio

Trusts are the best estate planning tool for most people, and our Brecksville, Ohio Trust lawyer can set up your Trust for you. A Trust is not needed for everyone. A basic estate plan does not include a Trust. A Trust is a more advanced planning device, and provides great value. A Trust provides, privacy, efficiency, probate avoidance, and a lasting legacy for your loved ones.

Strengths of a Trust (Revocable Living Trust)

Valente Law’s Brecksville, Ohio Trust lawyer recommends Trusts because of the following great benefits. First, Trusts allow you to avoid probate court.  Probate court is the expensive, stressful, public process of inventorying the Decedent’s assets, pay debts, and distribute the remaining assets. If you have a Trust, you can totally avoid probate court! That alone makes Trusts worthwhile for many people.  Additionally, a Trust also allows for distribution of assets over a long period of time. Yet another great benefit is that a Trust can provide asset protection benefits. Trusts are  100% private.
