Oswego IL Living Trust Attorneys

As Living Trust Attorneys, we understand the power of Living Trust versus Wills. Wills must undergo a court process called “probate court”. As probate attorneys, probate court is risky and costs hundreds of thousands of dollars in some cases when a will contest occurs.
A Last Will and Testament is a public document and must be filed at the local courthouse. Moreover, a Last Will and Testament must be probated at the Kendall County Courthouse where a Judge will supervise the administration and distribution of assets. A Kendall County Court Judge could veto your decision to appoint a executor. 

Unlike a Last Will and Testament, a Living Trust avoids probate court. A Living Trust is a private document and no notices must be mailed to disgruntled heirs which encourages a Will or Trust Contest. A Living Trust provides a smooth transition upon your death or incapacity.  Your family wealth is transferred to your loved one’s without court interference.

What is a Declaration of Trust?

A Declaration of Trust is a Living Trust or Family Trust, which outlines your wishes upon your death or incapacity. Trust have several names and a Declaration of Trust is one name for a Living Trust or otherwise known as a “Revocable Living Trust”. A Declaration of Trust appoints a Trustee and Successor Trustee or co-Trustees that will manage your estate’s money upon a death or incapacity.

A Declaration of Trust also describes how you want to distribute specific gifts and whether you want any strings attached to protect your family’s inheritance. For example, a powerful tool of a Trust is the ability to create sub-trust for children and grandchildren where the principal of the sub-trust can only be attained at ages 25, 30 or 35 years of age (or as you desire).   We can customize your family’s estate planning goals through a Declaration of Trust Agreement.
