Create an Arizona Living Trust



An Arizona living trust is the best way to ensure your significant assets are distributed quickly and with as little hassle as possible after you pass away. Why create a living trust if you already have a will? A living trust offers quite a few advantages, most notably that it allows you, in most states, to avoid probate. Probate is a legal proceeding that puts a will into action. And this is no lightening-fast procedure. In fact, it can take anywhere from six months to three years to complete. Frequently, your heirs will need to hire a lawyer to mire through the court proceedings.



Estate planning is the process of organizing your financial and personal interests so that your wishes are met with a minimum of inconvenience and expense after you die. Living trusts are very useful planning tools. If prepared accurately, they can help your inheritors avoid certain estate taxes. Additionally, a living trust allows you to hand over management of your resources to someone else if you are unable to manage them on your own.
