A Trust is a legal entity that is an efficient and flexible estate planning tool. A Trust is created to own, manage, and distribute assets to beneficiaries with minimal involvement from the courts thus avoiding the probate process. Trust can be revocable or irrevocable trusts.
Living Trusts are valid in all 50 states. However, we advise that if you move to Florida that you have your trust amended to Florida laws and change of address be made. More info on Living Trusts
