Why create a living trust?
Living trusts are a way to distribute your assets and provide for your beneficiaries while keeping loved ones out of probate court. Since trusts don’t need to be filed in probate court, they offer more privacy. Revocable living trusts allow you to change your terms if you change your mind.
Keep family out of probate court
Spare your loved ones from the expenses and delays that may result from the probate process. Avoid multistate probate if you own real estate in another state.
Protect your privacy
Keep your personal matters—and assets—private with a trust. Probate court records are public records, which means that anyone can access your will.
Avoid bank delays
Help ensure your assets are accessible to your loved ones with less interruption after your death. With a living trust, a trustee can typically access assets and handle affairs more quickly than with a will.
