Trusts

Trustworthy Assistance In Trust Creation And Administration

Trusts are an excellent way to leave money, property and other assets to someone you love. By using a trust, you can ensure that your hard-won assets will provide for the future of the next generation. But to establish a legally sound trust, you must work with an attorney who understands the ins and outs of trusts, estate planning and estate administration.

Enter Buchler and Buchler, LLC. Since 1949, the lawyers at our firm have helped people throughout Louisiana provide for their loved ones through trusts and other estate planning tools. We also assist with trust administration for trustors, trustees and fiduciaries.

Creating A Trust: What Are My Options?

There are several types of trusts that you can use as tools in estate planning. Selecting the right one is paramount. Some of the most effective trusts include:

  • Revocable trusts, or living trusts, transfer property to the beneficiary while the trustor is still alive, thereby avoiding succession. The trustor can add or remove assets to the trust as desired.
  • Irrevocable trusts do not allow modification of the terms of the trust. The property in these trusts also avoids the succession process and estate taxes.
  • Asset protection trusts. These can help your inheritors avoid claims from creditors.
  • Special needs trusts are helpful tools that preserve assets for adults or children who have special needs and receive government benefits.
