Trust Attorneys in Salina

Giving You the Power to Design Your Future in Kansas City

A trust enables you to have total control over your wealth, as you are able to specify exactly how you would like your assets to be handled in the future. There are many types of trusts, but each is designed to give you complete agency over what happens with your money and when in this lifetime and beyond. Whether you are looking to ensure that your children are provided for after you are gone, or you are interested in the tax benefits certain trusts offer, a Salina estate planning lawyer can help you determine which option best meets your current and future needs.

For more information on how this applies to your estate, contact the Salina trust lawyers at Brown & Vogel, LLC today at (785) 859-4612.

Revocable vs. Irrevocable Trusts

While there are many types of trusts, all fall into one of two categories: revocable or irrevocable.

Revocable trusts, also called living trusts, enable you to arrange for how your assets will be distributed upon your passing but also allow you to control your assets during your life. This flexibility extends even further, giving you the power to dissolve the trust entirely at any point if you so desire. These trusts can help your beneficiaries avoid the lengthy probate process upon your death; however, your assets included in the trust will still be subject to estate taxes.

Conversely, the main benefit of irrevocable trusts is that they transfer your assets in a way that typically protects them from both probate and estate taxes. However, once this type of trust has been executed, you lose control over the assets and cannot change or dissolve the trust at any point.

We have extensive experience with many types of revocable and irrevocable trusts, including:

  • Charitable trusts
  • Credit shelter trusts
  • Testamentary trusts
  • Irrevocable living trusts

In addition to overseeing trust administration, we are able to provide you with strong legal representation during trust litigation.
