Although deciding on how a person’s assets will be distributed after death is not something we think about every day. However, we all know there are only two guarantees in life, death and taxes. While difficult, dealing with these realities is an important part of any relationship. Because of its importance, taking the time with your loved one and the legal team at LOVE’S PARACHUTE to help create a wills and trusts in the present will save a lot of sorrow in the future. At LOVE’S PARACHUTE, we will work with you to help you through the often complicated process in order to ensure that your family is taken care of should the worst occur.
While a will and trust are somewhat different from one another, they exist to accomplish one goal, to ensure that your money and property are distributed properly in the event if your death. A will identifies your desire of who will take care of your children, inherit any property or assets that you might have and to select a person to manage the disbursement of your assets. On the other hand, a living trust is a specific tool that is used for financial planning before your death. A trust is established through a will to set out conditions and limitations on distributions of money and property to those named in the will.
If you are an LGBT couple, creating a will is extremely important in order to ensure that your assets are disbursed properly. Because certain laws are continually changing in regards to same-sex marriages, a will is a critical piece of insurance for your family. For instance, if you get married in Florida and decide to move to a state that does not recognize LGBT marriages and then pass away, there’s a good chance that your spouse will not have any rights to your assets or property. Additionally, a will may be the determining factor that prevents your immediate family members from obtaining control of your property or assets at the time of death.
For LGBT couples, a living trust is a perfect way for your family to receive financial security. In fact, the goal of a living trust is to avoid the probate process for your assets, real estate, bank accounts and personal property. At LOVE’S PARACHUTE, our team of attorney’s posses a wide range of different experiences when it comes to creating and implementing a living trust that protects you and your family at all times.
