Trusts & Estates
Estate planning is one of the more important aspects of life planning. The process involves executing legal documents that provide directives regarding inheritance gifts and estate settlement procedures to ensure relatives are looked after upon death.
Family trusts are a valuable estate planning strategy that allows individuals to control what happens to their assets during their lifetime and upon death. Furthermore, property held in trusts is exempt from probate and can be quickly passed along to family members.
