Let Jackson Law Firm, PLLC Fight for the Benefits You Deserve

Chattanooga Trusts Attorney

Secure the Future of Your Loved Ones

Many people mistakenly believe that all trusts are the same, when in fact there are many types of trusts for different purposes, and each of them perform differently. One of the advantages of creating a living trust is to spare your family the expense and delay associated with probate court proceedings.

Since Tennessee does not use the Uniform Probate Code, which simplifies probate, it may be a good idea to establish a living trust in order to avoid Tennessee's complex probate process. At Jackson Law Firm, PLLC, we help individuals and families establish both revocable and irrevocable trusts. Our Chattanooga estate planning lawyer can help you determine if you would benefit from a trust, and if so, which type of trust would be most suitable for your individual circumstances.

Information on Living Trusts

A living trust is a written legal document that partially substitutes for a will. With a living trust, your assets such as you home, bank accounts, and stocks are put into the trust, they are administered for your benefit during your lifetime, and then they are transferred to your beneficiaries when you pass away.

Most people name themselves as the trustee in charge of managing their trust's assets. This allows you to maintain control of your assets during your lifetime. You can also name a successor trustee who manages your trust assets if you ever become incapacitated.

Speak With an Attorney in Absolute Confidentiality

There are different kinds of trusts that can reduce taxes, help you avoid probate, provide for a special needs child, or set up long-term property management with an irrevocable trust.
