Trusts Are Among The Most Effective Estate Planning Tools

Your wishes to provide security for your beneficiaries can be undone if you don't have the appropriate estate planning documents in place. For many families, the appropriate estate planning document is a trust.

I am attorney Monika Blacha. I draft trusts and other estate planning documents for clients in Naperville and the surrounding areas.

What Is A Trust?

A trust is a powerful estate planning document that you can use to manage your assets while you are alive and protect your beneficiaries after you become incapacitated or die. A trust can be the foundation of a well-crafted estate plan, taking the place of a will. It can also serve a supplementary role to address a specific issue or concern.

There are many kinds of trusts that can help you accomplish specific goals such as:

  • Minimizing or eliminating taxes
  • Avoiding the cost, delay and publicity of a probate proceeding
  • Providing assets for a disabled family member without causing him or her to lose eligibility for government benefits
  • Protecting assets provided to beneficiaries from creditors, predators and ex-spouses

It is important to set up the right kind of trust to accomplish your goals. I am available to discuss your trust with your family members so they understand how the protection of a trust works. I am also here to advise successor trustees to ensure that the assets you provide to your beneficiaries continue to enjoy the protections of the trust.
