What are express trusts?

When it comes to terms and options regarding trusts, there are many areas people may be unfamiliar with. Not only are there many different types of trusts that people can decide to set up, but they can vary considerably and some may struggle to find one that is most suitable for their needs. Moreover, there are so many terms with respect to trusts and estate planning in general that it can be confusing at times. For example, some people in Detroit and across Michigan may wonder what an express trust is.

Estate planning and procrastination

Estate planning can be tricky for many reasons, as we have talked about on this blog. For some people, the very idea of setting up an estate plan may be upsetting. Some people may not want to think about the future, or what will happen to their loved ones after they pass away. For others, daily life may be so hectic that the idea of working through estate matters seems overwhelming. Furthermore, some people simply have a tendency to procrastinate. However, pushing off estate planning can be problematic and many people feel a sense of relief after they properly create an effective estate plan.

Moving forward with a holographic will

The laws vary from state to state, but holographic wills are recognized in Michigan, so long as certain requirements are met. Our law office understands that estate planning can be complicated and every person's situation is unique. Moreover, unexpected challenges in life can arise at any time, which may prompt people to make decisions that differ from their original plans. For example, someone may not have an estate plan and they may find out that they have a very short amount of time to live, prompting them to set up a holographic will. This also underlines the importance of planning ahead to be prepared for any unexpected events.

Finding the trust that is right for you

We have written about many of the different options that people have when it comes to trusts, from special needs trusts to constructive trusts. For some people, a revocable trust makes the most sense, but irrevocable trusts work out better for others. It is crucial to take an individualized approach to your estate and pinpoint the type of trust that will work best for you as well as those you love. There are many different considerations when it comes to estate planning, but knowing that you have figured out the most practical trust can make you feel relieved and confident in your plan.
