To ensure that your hard-earned assets will go to your loved ones after your death, look into creating a trust. A trust allows your estate to avoid the probate court process, which, in addition to being expensive, could tie up your assets for up to two years. There are trust structures available to meet a range of individual needs, and they can be tailored to emphasize tax savings, income maximization for the beneficiaries, non-citizen asset preservation, and more.
