More Practice Areas
A living usually refers to a “revokable trust”. The primary purpose of a revokable trust is to avoid probate.
A revokable true is generally for people who have no close family or who own real property outside of New York State.
Yes. When you create a trust you must then transfer assets to the trustee. You may forget or not get around to transferring all of your assets and if you pass away, a will would be used in probate. The will would stipulate that all assets should pass through the trust (This is called a Pour-Over Will). If you do not have a will, then the laws of New York will dictate who inherits your remaining assets.
- Distributing the assets per terms of the Will
- Settling any debts of the estate
- Filing State and Federal estate tax returns, if necessary
