A trust is a fiduciary relationship where a one party, called a trustee, hold assets on behalf of a beneficiary or beneficiaries. There are many different types of trusts: revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, special needs trusts, support trusts. Trusts can come to life while you are living (intervivos trusts), or spring to life after you die (testamentary trusts). An attorney can help you decide whether a trust will help you achieve your estate planning goals.
