With a trust, you can have greater control of your legacy and help your family avoid some of the pitfalls of probate. Many clients wonder whether a will or a trust is best for them.

While a trust can be more costly to establish and maintain, it has added benefits that can be useful if you have significant assets, want privacy regarding your estate and inheritance, and want greater control about how your legacy will be honored.

One of the aspects of establishing a trust that differs from writing a will is the need for a trust to be administered. When establishing a trust, having a clear trust administration plan in place is just as important. When it comes to trusts, you can’t just assume that the administration process will unfold automatically after you pass away. Having a responsible trust administrator to handle the process is important. Trust administration involves a range of procedures, but in some ways they are similar to probate though the legal process will be different. The administration of a trust involves the notification of beneficiaries of the trust about the death of the grantor, filing proper tax forms, publishing proper legal notice in newspapers, accounting for assets including appraising and valuing assets, paying ongoing expenses for the trust, paying debts, and distributing assets to beneficiaries.
