Understanding the Differences Between a Will and a Trust

Estate planning might seem complex, but it’s straightforward once you understand your options. Here’s what you can do:

Do Nothing: If you take no action, your estate will be handled by the probate court after your death. It’s important to note that this process can be slow, costly, and time-consuming as the court divides your property.

Create a Will: By drafting a Last Will and Testament, you specify how you want your estate to be distributed. This document will be interpreted by the probate court, which again, can be a slow and costly process.

Set Up a Revocable Living Trust: This option allows you to avoid the probate process entirely. A Revocable Living Trust offers significant savings on probate lawyer fees and time, ensuring peace of mind with a guaranteed outcome for how your estate is handled.

Asset Protection with the Missouri Asset Protection Trust

Explore the advantages offered by the Missouri Asset Protection Trust. Designed as an irrevocable trust, it stands as a robust method for protecting your family’s financial resources from creditors.

By placing your assets within this trust, you create a legal barrier that shields them from various external claims, ensuring that your wealth is preserved for future generations. This trust is particularly beneficial for individuals seeking to maintain control over their assets while providing long-term security for their family.

It also offers estate planning flexibility, allowing for the distribution of assets according to specific wishes without the interference of external parties.

Engaging in this form of asset protection ensures that your family’s financial health and legacy are safeguarded against unforeseen legal challenges.

Prevent Your Child from Going to Foster Care

Many people are unaware that only parents are considered legal guardians of minor children. Often, grandparents, aunts, uncles and adult siblings assume that if something happens to the parents, they will be able to automatically have custody of the children. Such assumption is not only incorrect, but tragic when the children enter the custody of Child Protective Services and the foster system unexpectedly.

With simple planning, such unintended consequences can be avoided. Missouri Law allows parents to appoint emergency and long-term guardians with a few simple documents.
