Whether you are a retired couple, widowed, a blended family, a couple with children, a single parent, a young couple, or single you should consider taking the time and expense of preparing an estate plan by setting up a Family Trust. Arizona is a probate state and when you are no longer here your Family Trust will distribute your property to whomever you have chosen (if you plan in advance) or the way some judge rules. It’s up to you to decide. My legal counsel prepares Family Trusts for all 50 states.
The concept of Estate Planning is really very simple and can be broken down into 3 elements:
1. You accumulate property.
2. You preserve the property you have; and
3. You distribute your property when you die to whomever you have chosen.
