Create an Indiana Living Trust



You know that it's important to plan for your children and your spouse. That's why you have insurance, a financial plan, and hopefully pay a mortgage instead of a monthly rent. You have probably taken care of your last will and testament, and you might even think you're all set. If your financial planners and accounts haven't brought it up to you yet, think about forming a living trust. By holding your property in trust, you stand to save money the best way we all know how—pay less in taxes.



An Indiana living trust is the best way to ensure your most significant property is distributed quickly and easily after your passing. Why create a living trust if you already have a will? A living trust offers quite a few advantages, the biggest and most cost-saving of which is that it allows you, in most states, to avoid probate. Probate is a legal proceeding that the courts use to implement a will and can take anywhere from six months to three years to complete. Not only is time a factor when dealing with probate, frequently your heirs will need to hire a lawyer to get through the court proceedings.
