When a person dies without a will, the state will intercede without any effort to keep tax liability down or to disperse the estate as the decedent would have wanted.

Our Xenia Estate Attorneys Can Help You Understand Wills and Trusts

Clients sometimes have confusion over the differences between a will and a trust; each has its own purposes and advantages.

We discuss the distinctions between a will and a trust below:

  • Wills are written with the purpose of directing the dispersal of a person’s property at death and can also identify the person who should be named guardian of any minor children. When written carefully, these documents may prevent painful and drawn-out contested guardianships.
  • Trusts are written to establish who will be responsible for managing property with the intent to benefit another. Trusts can be used to avoid probate, to limit estate taxes or to ensure support for a disabled or disadvantaged family member. We work with clients who hope to create trusts and those who are facing trust litigation.
