Irrevocable Trusts in Mesa, AZ

When it comes to estate planning, irrevocable trusts are one of many tools you can use to protect your assets and your loved ones, and Walk-In Wills can help you make decisions that align with your best interests.

Our skilled and compassionate attorneys have provided guidance to estate planners since 2003. As a result, we have experience with a variety of clients, from simple estates to more complex situations involving higher values and a greater volume of assets.

How Do Irrevocable Trusts Work?

The creation of an irrevocable trust involves three individuals: grantors, trustees, and beneficiaries. The grantor is the person who created the trust, while the trustee is the person who manages it. The beneficiaries are the people who will receive assets from the trust according to the wishes of the grantor.

Once assets are placed into a trust, the grantor no longer has possession of them, as they’re owned by the trust. As a result, the grantor can’t make changes to an irrevocable trust after assets have been placed in it. This provides a key benefit since assets in the trust cannot be accessed by creditors and aren’t subject to tax, which offers protection to the estate as well as the beneficiaries.

Who Needs an Irrevocable Trust?

Not everyone needs to include an irrevocable trust in their estate plan. However, the tool is especially beneficial to people who:

  • Face a high risk of litigation (such as medical professionals)
  • Want protection from creditors
  • Own their own businesses
  • Want to decrease the cost of estate taxes
  • Need access to government benefits and are concerned about income thresholds

If you’re not sure whether this estate planning tool makes sense for your situation, our attorneys can walk you through the process and help you make the right decision.
