Which types of Trusts can Citadel Law Firm help you with?
Although there are some very specific trust to serve specific purposes (like Special Needs Trust or Dynasty Trusts) we like to divide Trust in four main categories:
- Living Trusts: a Trust that goes in to effect as soon as it is created, that is why it is called "Living" as the person (or people) creating the Trust is still alive. Our services included here by the expert trusts lawyers.
- Testamentary Trusts: a Trust that is created but only goes into effect when the person (or people) named in the Trust passes away. A Testamentary Trust is usually included inside of a Will when a Living Trust can't be created. It is a less common type of Trust but very effective to protect assets for next generations.
- Revocable Trusts: it is a Trust that can be changed or revoked. The person/people creating the Trust has the ability to change the terms of the Trust, like the Trustee or the beneficiaries, or revoke the Trust completely. A good way to explain also is to say that the Trust "maker" retains the ownership of the Trust. A Revocable Trust is the most common type of Trust that we create, usually also created as a Living Trust.
- Irrevocable Trusts: it is a type of Trust that the ownership is giving away and you los the ability to change or revoke that Trust . Sometimes a revocable trust turns into an irrevocable trust after the passing of the person (or persons) that created the original Trust. In very special circumstances an irrevocable trust can be revoked. Although rare at our law firm we have seen a few cases.
