Trust Drafting and Creation in Florida

AT&T, Sprint & T-Mobile Users Can Dial: **TRUSTS

Drafting a trust is not easy or inexpensive. A properly drafted and executed trust can cost thousands of dollars in legal fees and require many hours of your own time to create.

However, drafting a trust incorrectly can cost your family far more.

Trust documents must be designed to anticipate future events and to plan for their resolution.

The following is a short list of what every trust document should consider:

  • Federal taxation
  • State taxation
  • Estate tax implications
  • Tax return preparation and filings
  • Investment policy statement
  • Planning for incapacity of trustee
  • Avoiding probate
  • Privacy and confidentiality
  • Asset protection from creditors
  • Flexibility to address changes in laws
  • Beneficiary’s disability or serious illness
  • Excluded beneficiaries
  • Spendthrift provisions
  • Divorce of the beneficiary
  • Bankruptcy
  • Future special needs of beneficiary
  • Right to amend and revoke
  • Payments clauses
  • Document archive and backup
  • Successor trustees
  • Applicable law or situs
  • Preservation of beneficiaries government benefits
  • Planning for potential problems (example drug abuse by a beneficiary)
