Living Will Attorney in Phoenix, AZ

Estate planning is an important part of your life as it encompasses events that happen both during and after your life. Typical estate planning goals include appointing people to act for you medically and financially during an incapacitation, nominating guardians for dependent children and controlling distributions of an estate.

Documents used during one's lifetime might include:

      Medical power of attorney

      Mental health care power of attorney

      Living Will

      Financial power of attorney

      Revocable living trust

Documents used after is deceased might include:

    Last will and testament

    Testamentary trust

    Revocable living trust

    Other types of trusts

While the concepts of power of attorneys and last will and testaments are straightforward, the concept of a trust is often foreign to many people. Unlike a will, which can be thought of as instructions on paper, a trust can be pictured as a box.

The box (trust) takes ownership of the assets and can hold them long after the trust's creator(s) passes. Reasons for holding assets are to:

    Control distributions to young beneficiaries

    Allow an asset to be used by someone before being distributed to someone else

    Protect the privacy of an estate

    Avoid probate

    Potentially reduce estate taxes.

There are many types of specialty trusts for large estates but the most common type of trust families utilize are either a living trust or testamentary trust. Living trusts are created while the trust's creator is still living as opposed to a testamentary trust, which is created by a last will and testament after the testator (the wills creator) passes. The other major difference between the two trusts is a living trust helps assets avoid probate. A testamentary trust does not help assets avoid probate.
