Estate Planning Archives

Setting up an incentive trust

You've worked hard to accumulate the wealth that you have and invested wisely. You want to leave that wealth to your children, grandchildren and other family members when you pass away. However, you don't want this new-found wealth to ruin their lives. You want to ensure that they use it to better their lives and the lives of others. How do you avoid the curse of "trust fund babies?"

Marylanders may face multiple estate taxes plus inheritance taxes

Sometimes even death isn't enough to make us exempt from paying taxes -- or at least from those who inherit our estate from paying them. Marylanders are among the Americans whose beneficiaries may find themselves with a particularly large tax burden in estate and inheritance taxes if they don't do some careful estate planning.

Protecting your child with a special needs trust

One of the primary concerns of people who have children with special needs is who will take care of them when they are gone if the disabled child is not able to care for or support themselves as adults. By setting up a special needs trust, you can help ensure that they'll be cared for and that their assets will be protected.

Using your estate plan to leave a legacy

Increasingly, estate planning isn't just about leaving money, property and other assets to family members and other loved ones. For many Americans, it's become a way to leave a legacy -- to use the fruits of your success to help organizations that are doing work you value or that have meant something in your life.

Estate planning is more important than ever for same-sex couples

With the Trump administration in place and a Republican majority in both houses of Congress, many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are concerned that the legal victories they've had in recent years may be rolled back in the upcoming years.

A trust can save your child's inheritance in a divorce

Inheritances can be tricky things when couples divorce. Although an inheritance left to one spouse is considered an individual asset rather than a marital one, once it's commingled with marital assets (such as in a bank account) or used to buy joint property, it becomes part of the property division of the divorce.

Everything you should know about estate planning

Estate Planning has become a prominent financial insurance policy across the U.S in recent years. Based on its immense benefits, you can safely plan for your retirement and safeguard the basic needs of your loved ones. In most cases, estate planning aims at ensuring that your health care wishes and personal property are honored and catered for in their absence. By activating an estate planning process, you will not only have peace of mind, but your loved ones are also exempted from nasty feuds during the distribution of assets.

When and how does a trust end?

Trusts are artificial legal entities that can own property, sue and be sued (just like a person). They, like corporations, are treated as separate legal entities. Trusts form one of the pillars of estate planning (along with wills and a few other strategies). This post will go over the basics of how trusts operate and how they end.
