Understand the many facets of probate law

If you've never made an estate plan, wills and trusts can be confusing. Here are a few key terms to understand:

Testamentary trusts - A part of a will, these trusts provide you the ability to control the distribution of your assets to your beneficiaries after you pass away. You can assign a trustee to oversee the trust and ensure that the beneficiaries receive what you want for them over the time period you choose.
Medical powers of attorney - Also part of a will, this outlines who you wish to speak on your behalf if you are no longer able to do so. Usually, you would want a loved one or trusted friend to be able to make major life decisions for you if you are too ill or incapacitated to act on your own.
Preparation of wills - This is the act of organizing trusts, powers of attorney documents and other paperwork to create a testament that outlines your wishes. Parts of a will can go into effect during your life, but most will become legally binding after you pass away.With the right attorney by your side, you can handle your will or your loved one's estate with ease.
