Wills & Trusts
A will is a document you create to control who gets your
property, who will be the guardian of your children, and who
will manage your estate upon your death. The importance of
a will cannot be understated. More than likely a will is
perhaps the most important legal document the average
person will ever sign. Yet, over 70% of American adults do
not have a will. Not enough time, can't afford an attorney, too
busy to think about it - - are all common reasons why people
do not prepare wills.
If you are leaving property to minor children, you may want to
another. For instance, if you leave $10,000 to your child who
is 12 years old, you could have the property placed "in trust"
child until he or she reaches a certain age or finishes
school. The person you name to take care of the property is
called the trustee of the property, and your child is the
beneficiary. The trustee is usually the person you appoint
as the guardian to your children, but it can be someone
else you appoint instead. Many rules apply to the trustee.
For example, the trustee must act in the best interest of the
beneficiary. The trustee cannot mishandle the property or
use the property for his or her own benefit.
