Revocable Trust Attorney on Long Island

What is a Revocable Living Trust?

Whenever you utilize estate planning to provide for your family or to take a proactive approach towards the future, the use of trusts can be extremely helpful. When there are properties or assets that you want to protect from probate, trusts will allow you to designate a beneficiary to whom the property will immediately revert in the case of death.

Creating a revocable trust will allow you to handle these matters privately, instead of allowing them to be handled publicly through probate. If you are considering using trusts and would like flexibility in handling the details of the trust, you should acquire legal guidance from a Long Island estate litigation lawyer who will be able to assist you in creating your trust.

The primary benefits of revocable living trusts include the flexibility of being able to alter your trust and retaining protection from probate in the event of the grantor’s death, which can help you avoid or reduce some taxes and protect your privacy, as well as avoiding expensive probates fees. Unfortunately, unlike irrevocable trusts, revocable living trusts do not remove the property from your name, which will leave the grantor (the person who created the trust) responsible for applicable taxes on income or federal property taxes.
