What is a Living Trust?

Living Trust is a legal document in which the client’s assets are placed into a trust for your benefit during your lifetime.  This document avoids probate.

A living trust is different than a Living Will.  A Living Will is a legal document that a person uses to make known his/her wishes regarding medical treatment in the event that he/she is not able to express informed consent.

What is Probate?

A valid Will goes through Probate, this is the process in which your estate goes through in court.  A Living Trust doesn’t go through probate which makes the distribution of assets faster and less costly.

What is a Will?

It’s a legal document in which the client establishes his wishes about how he wants his estate or assets to be distributed upon death.  A Will needs to be written according to the law to be valid.  Without a Will, all your assets will go through Probate. Vega Law offices in Glendale, CA
