Tips for choosing the right trustee

For people in Georgia, choosing the right trustee is an important part of making sure that a trust works as it is intended. There are a number of elements to consider, including whether the trustee should be someone who has a personal connection to the family. The wrong trustee could upset the plans included in even the most carefully designed trust.

Types of trusts to consider with estate planning

Estate planning traditionally starts with a will, which allows you to list out which heirs get which assets. You can leave one child the car, for instance, while another gets the art collection. You can leave them both the house and let them decide what to do with it. Your will gives you a say in how your estate gets distributed.

How nontraditional families might approach estate planning

Traditional families composed of a mother, a father and their children are increasingly in the minority. It is more likely that a Georgia resident who is creating an estate plan is part of a blended family, is one-half of an unmarried couple, is a single parent, or is divorced one or more times with children from each relationship. These are only a few of the family arrangements that can make an estate plan more complex.
