A Guide to Revocable Trusts in Mesa, AZ

For over two decades, our knowledgeable and compassionate attorneys at Walk-In Wills have helped people plan for the future. Along with will creation, we can also help you establish a revocable trust to exert greater control over your assets and how they’re dispersed to your heirs.

What Is a Revocable Trust?

Similar to wills, revocable trusts are an estate planning tool that allows you to provide assets to beneficiaries after you die. However, they provide the grantor, meaning the creator of the trust, with more power over how assets are dispersed. For instance, you can include a clause that states an heir must graduate from college or reach a certain age before assets are handed out.

How Does It Work?

Revocable trusts can be funded with money or property. In addition to the grantor, revocable trusts also have a trustee, which is a person that manages the trust on behalf of the grantor. In many cases, the grantor serves as the trustee until the time of their death, at which point another trustee will handle duties related to asset distribution.

What Benefits Do Revocable Trusts Offer?

Trusts are beneficial to avoiding probate, which is the legal process of proving a will valid and distributing assets to heirs. With a trust, assets go directly to heirs according to the terms of the trust, without the need for probate. And unlike irrevocable trusts, revocable trusts can be changed during the person’s lifetime.
