Wills vs. Living Trusts, Which is Right For You?


What is estate planning?


A comprehensive estate plan starts with a living trust and is supported by a pour-over will, power of attorney, healthcare directive, and grant deed to transfer title to your residence..


  • Estate planning can help you avoid probate, which is a court process that can be time-consuming and expensive.

  • Estate planning can help you ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes.

  • Estate planning can provide for your care in the event of incapacity.




What is a simple will?


A simple will is a legal document that states your wishes for the distribution of your assets after you die. It can also name a guardian for your minor children.


Pros:

  • Wills are relatively simple to create and can be done without the help of an attorney.

  • Wills can be updated at any time to reflect changes in your life and circumstances.


Cons:


  • Wills do not avoid probate.

  • Wills cannot provide for your care in the event of incapacity.



Which is right for you?


Whether estate planning or a will is right for you depends on your individual circumstances. If you have a simple estate and do not need to avoid probate, a will may be sufficient. However, if you have a complex estate or want to avoid probate, you should consider estate planning.
