FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW MUCH WILL MY DIVORCE COST?
WHAT IS A CONTINGENT FEE AGREEMENT?
DO I NEED A WILL OR A TRUST?
The answer to this question used to be dependent upon tax consequences and how to avoid estate taxes. Since the current limits for each individual are so high, most people don’t need to worry about the tax consequences.
Now many people want a Trust to avoid filing a probate action in court. Wills are distributed by filing a case and the court oversees the distrubition by the trustees without filing a probate action.
Other considerations include: the cost, wills are less expensive than trusts to prepare, also its becoming more common to retain attorneys for trust distribution to make sure all of the requirements and procedures are followed.
