St. Cloud Wills & Trusts Lawyer
Preparing for the Future
Creating estate plans, healthcare directives, living wills and trusts before they are necessary can alleviate unnecessary stress for your family. At the Law Office of Charles M. Schiff, in St. Cloud, Minnesota, I work with clients to prepare estate plans and can guide clients through the probate process when the time comes.
What is a Will?
A will is an important written, legal statement in which you declare who will manage your estate upon your death and how your assets will be distributed. It can also be used to name a guardian for your minor children. Though it is sometimes difficult to think about what will happen when you have passed on, it is important to consider how your loved ones will be affected and determine who will oversee your wishes.
What is a Trust?
A trust may be created in addition to a will, as part of a will, or as an alternative to a will. It is essentially property that is held by one party for the benefit of another. The party holding and managing the trust property can be an individual or an institution (a bank, for example). Deciding whether a trust is right for you and your estate is sometimes confusing. A knowledgeable attorney can advise you on all of your estate planning options and ensure that your choices are executed fastidiously and legally.
