Maryland Estate Planning: Is a Living Trust a Good Idea?

A living trust is a written legal document that places assets in a trust which can still be used by the principle. Once the principle dies, the trust can be transferred to the designated beneficiaries. There are many benefits to creating a living trust. One reason to create a living trust is to avoid probate. Avoiding court can decrease the distribution time from years to weeks. Another benefit to a living trust is the privacy that comes with the trust. Unlike a will that becomes a public record after death, a living trust is not public and the estate can be distributed in private.

Deciding whether to create a living trust versus a will can be a tough decision. The best way to make the decision is to contact an experienced attorney and discuss your goals and concerns.
