What Happens If I Don't Have an Estate Plan?

Without an estate plan, your assets may go through a lengthy and costly legal process called probate. Your assets might not be distributed as you wish, and disputes among your loved ones can arise. An estate plan helps avoid these issues and gives you control over your legacy.

What Is the Difference Between a Will and a Trust?

A will and a trust both dictate how your assets should be distributed, but they function differently. A will takes effect only upon your passing and goes through probate, a length and expensive court process, while a trust can be active during your lifetime and avoid probate, allowing your family to settle your estate without stepping foot in a courtroom.
