I Don't Have Many Assets, Do I Still Need a Will or Trust?

Wills and TrustsWills and trusts protect more than just financial assets. A will can determine guardianship of your children and even pets if something happens to you. Please refer to the Guardianship and Special Needs page for more information.

Protecting More Than Just Financial Assets

You may also want to direct that certain assets are used to pay certain expenses. Sometimes, it is just as important to know where your debts will go as where your assets will go. A good financial planning discussion with your attorney should include a discussion of ways to lessen the impact of taxes, long-term care, funeral expenses, probate fees, and continuing debts on surviving family members. You should also ask how a trust can protect your children's assets from creditors and predators.
