Which is the better estate plan, having a Last Will or Living Trust? The answer depends upon many factors, such as do you want to avoid probate; is it important to protect the inheritance you leave in the event your spouse remarries; do you need to slow down the receipt of their inheritance for your children and grandchildren? If the answer to any of those questions is yes, you should consider creating an estate plan with a Living Trust. Please discuss this important subject with your estate planning attorney.
