A basic estate plan typically starts with a Revocable Living Trust

To paraphrase, Ben Franklin said it best. In this world, nothing is certain except death and taxes. Since death is inevitable, it is something we must prepare for. A basic estate plan typically starts with a revocable living trust. A revocable living trust is one of the best methods for protecting assets for your loved ones both during and after your lifetime. Such trusts do not go through probate court, transferring assets seamlessly with minimal effect from estate and administrative taxes, fees, and regulations, both state and federal, says Anne Desormier-Cartwright of Elder and Estate Planning Attorneys PA.

The advantages of a revocable living trust are you eliminate the high cost associated with probate, assets are distributed more quickly, your affairs remain private, and there is no estate tax return to be filed at your death. Elder and Estate Planning Attorneys PA is a law office small enough to provide personal service, but large enough to handle all of your estate and planning needs.
