The Importance of Trusts & Estates

Securing the Future of the Ones You Love

Do you know what is going to happen to your loved ones after you pass away? Who will care for them? Will they have the income they need? Even if you are certain that your family and friends will have adequate finances and care after you've gone, they still deserve to receive a share of your property as a security. Estate planning is not only the smart thing to do, it is also a means of relieving any stress or concerns that you may have now or in the future regarding your estate and the future of your friends and family. By drafting a trust, a will, and/or planning your estate, you could rest at ease knowing that things will be properly taken care of no matter what happens.

What is the purpose of estate planning?

Putting your assets and property in order before your death can have immediate or future benefits. For example, if you set up a trust for one of your family members or friends, they could begin to see the effects of those funds in the near future. A trust fund is placed in the care of a reliable trust administrator, who handles the trust until a designated time, such as when the beneficiary comes of age or upon the death of the trustor. Even before they come into the money, however, a beneficiary could see the grown and interest that their funds are obtaining over time.

As for wills and estate administration, early and detailed planning can allow you to find peace of mind knowing that nothing is ambiguous and that the administration process will run as smoothly as possible after you've passed away. Property distribution can be an ugly, drawn out process when there is poor estate planning or no planning at all, which can in turn result in unfair distribution or mishandling of your property. Avoid this today by contacting the firm of Grant N. McKeehan, PLC for the qualified estate planning assistance that you need.

Secure the future for you and your loved ones. Grant regularly prepares wills and revocable living trusts designed to ensure that your chosen beneficiaries, such as family members, lifelong friends and charities, receive your assets upon your death. Establishing a revocable living trust will allow you to preserve the privacy of your estate plan, consolidate ownership of your assets into one receptacle and minimize the need to initiate probate proceedings. Additionally, due to improvements to the law made by the Arizona Trust Code, the use of spendthrift provisions in a revocable living trust can minimize the risk that an inheritance is squandered by beneficiaries or reached by their creditors. Grant also serves as legal counsel to Trustees and Personal Representatives with respect to the administration of trusts and estates in Arizona.
