Our Wills And Trusts Lawyers Help You Create The Customized Legal Documents That Clarify Your Wishes, Secure Your Legacy, And Give You And Your Family Peace Of Mind.
Wills and trusts are essential legal tools that can ensure that everyone and everything you care about will be protected, no matter what the future holds. It’s easy to procrastinate making a will and trust; many people think that they will have plenty of time to arrange their affairs when they are older, but none of us know how much time we have left. Passing away or becoming incapacitated without these documents means that Utah state laws – not your own intentions – will control what happens to your possessions and minor children. ProvenLaw wants to make sure that’s not your family’s story! We will work with you to design the right will and trust strategy for your unique needs. Let us take care of planning for the future so you can focus on enjoying the present. Call today to schedule a free 30 minute consultation and get started!
Why Is Having A Will And Trust So Important?
A will details how your assets will be distributed upon your death. The contents of your will should include the designation of a personal representative who will carry out your wishes, beneficiaries who will inherit your assets (and when), and the naming of guardians for minor children, if applicable. Everyone needs to have a clearly written will that makes their wishes known, but wills have limitations; they can only go into effect upon your death (so won’t be helpful to you loved ones if an illness or injury occurs), and they must go through probate to be validated (a time-consuming, expensive court process.
That’s why it is in your best interest to also have a trust, a fiduciary document that owns your assets outside of your name. Trusts can become active during your lifetime, avoid probate, and dictate specific instructions for how your wealth will be managed during your lifetime and distributed upon your death.
There are many different types of wills and trusts, including:
special needs trusts
pour over wills
last wills and testaments
Because these documents will shape your family’s legacy, it’s in your best interests to work with a team of reputable Utah wills and trusts lawyers who can draft the right documents for your specific family dynamics and financial circumstances. Many people are tempted to think that “DIY”ing their own will and trust using advice and templates found online will be cheaper and easier than hiring a law firm, but that usually backfires; not everything on the internet is correct, compliant with Utah state laws, or up-to-date, and it’s certainly not tailored to your needs. Any mistakes made during the process could actually end up costing you and your family more money down the road!
