      Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    What is the difference between a will and a trust?

    A will is a legal document that specifies how your assets should be distributed after your death. A trust is an arrangement that allows a third party, or trustee, to hold assets on behalf of a beneficiary or beneficiaries, often providing benefits like avoiding probate.

    Do I need both a will and a trust?

    It depends on your personal and financial situation. Many people benefit from having both, as they serve different purposes. A will covers any property that is only in your name when you die, while a trust can begin distributing property before death, at death, or afterwards.

    Can I update my will or trust after it's created?

    Yes, it’s essential to review and possibly update your will or trust as your life circumstances change. This ensures that your estate plan remains aligned with your current wishes and needs.
