Trusts can be a very beneficial tool for those who wish to pass on their assets to beneficiaries while avoiding probate court. When done properly, trust administration can be an entirely private matter not subject to court scrutiny. While you are alive and in good health, ordinarily, you will be the trustee of your own trust. You will designate a successor to act as successor trustee on your death. This trustee will be responsible for gathering your assets, filing tax returns, paying bills, and ultimately distributing your property pursuant to the terms of your trust.
Sometime, the selection of a successor trustee is obvious. One of your children is an accountant and very good with organizational skills and financial planning. Other times, it is difficult to trust someone with your assets (as well as your children's well-being in some cases). Searching for an attorney for trust administration in Orange County, CA?
