Make the most of the final weeks of summer by joining the rest of the nation in celebrating national make-a-will month! Longer daylight hours, lighter traffic and less academic responsibility make for an ideal time to get your estate planning in order. Making a Last Will and Testament is a great way to get started, but keep in mind that only a revocable trust will protect your assets from probate. Creating a will allows you to direct the specific disposition of your assets after your death, but a will must still be publicly probated in the court, requiring undue delay and expense. A revocable trust, however, may be administered privately in a timely fashion and will not be subject to statutorily imposed fees.
