Wills,Trusts and Bankruptcy

There are many ways to secure the transfer of your assets after you pass away through estate planning. Wills and trusts are the two most common methods. It is important to have your affairs in order to ensure that your loved ones are cared for and your assets are distributed or maintained in the way that you intend. At the Law Office of Rod Grafe we can make that possible by using our over 30 years of estate planning experience.

Creating a will provides instructions for how your property will be distributed upon your death. Any assets in your name must go through the state’s probate process before they can be distributed to your heirs. This takes time.

Another option is a trust. This can include anything in your estate-homes, bank accounts, digital assets, and anything else you own. One of the advantages of setting up a trust is that it can help you avoid costly, protracted probate court proceedings. By setting up a revocable living trust, you can avoid probate for virtually any property that you own, including real estate, heirlooms, antiques and bank account balances.
