Trusts

The setting up of a trust can be an effective way of protecting, preserving and transferring your wealth or planning for one's incapacity. Depending on your circumstances and objectives, a trust can be an important part of your estate plan. Our Houston trusts attorneys can help you design and establish a trust that effectively addresses your individual concerns.

We Handle All Types of Trusts

Our Houston estate administration attorneys have extensive experience helping clients determine their estate planning goals. We will help them meet these goals through the establishment of a trust. There are a number of options available to help meet these objectives, including:

A descendant's trust: This can hold funds for a child until he or she reaches an age determined by you, or for the course of a lifetime. For example, you may establish an education trust that will specifically cover the costs of college for your children or grandchildren.

A charitable trust: These are designed so that your estate never pays estate taxes. This can be set up in a variety of ways. For example, the charity may receive the proceeds of the trust income now while your family gets the trust assets later, or you can receive the income from the trust now while the remainder will go to the charity.

Special needs trust : These are established for loved ones who are elderly or disabled. This is known as a discretionary trust and gives the trustee the discretion to distribute the funds. The beneficiary cannot demand funds, so the trust will not affect income-based benefits such as Medicaid or Social Security income.

Other types of trusts:

Whatever your objectives, the lawyers at Hayes & Wilson, PLLC, will design and establish a trust for you, whether it is a tax-planned trust, a VA trust qualifying trust, a Miller trust, a trust set up for unmarried partners and more.
