Using Wills And Trusts To Protect Your Property

Creating an estate plan may feel like a daunting task, but it’s an important way to protect your legacy both now and in the future.

As a former critical care nurse, our lead attorney cares deeply about making sure families are prepared for anything. At the Estate Planning Law Office of Mary Alice Gwynn, PA, in Florida, we embody that desire by treating our clients with the utmost care, respect and compassion through every decision. Located in Delray Beach, we’re proud to help our local community protect the legacy they’ve worked hard to create.

The Differences Between Wills And Trusts

Both wills and trusts are useful tools to protect your assets, and there are a wide variety of options to choose from with each one. Your estate plan can include almost any combination of different wills and trusts, depending on your needs and goals.

  • Wills: A will is a document that determines who should receive property after a person’s death. Many wills only go into effect after a person has died, at which point their designated executor distributes their assets to their beneficiaries.
  • Trusts: Trusts can be implemented and accessed at any time, including before a person’s death. They are used to separate assets to be used by a beneficiary and are monitored by a trustee. Assets placed into a trust may be able to avoid probate, which makes them a good solution for many families.

Our legal team can help determine what’s right for your family and how best to protect what matters most to you.
