Trust Administration: Information

Oakland County Trust Administration Lawyer

Trust administration requires an attorney that has the ability to pay careful attention to even the smallest detail. In addition, your probate attorney that you hire should have extensive knowledge of probate law and experience in handling all aspects of trust administration. When you create a trust you are essentially granting control of your assets and property to another individual who is named a "trustee." Those that benefit from the trust are named "beneficiaries." Different types of trusts exist such as an irrevocable trust (a trust that cannot at any time be changed) and a revocable trust (a trust that can later be modified). Having a trust can benefit your family be helping them to avoid going through the probate process which, at times, can be lengthy and complicated, particularly in large estates.

Trusts are commonly utilized in estate planning and can greatly simplify the process of dividing your assets. Once a trust is created, the ownership of property is vested in it. The beneficiaries of the trust will then hold limited rights regarding the property. He or she may not be able to sell or transfer the property that is granted to them, and each trust has specific restrictions, that should reflect the wishes of the creator of the trust.
