Irrevocable Trusts

Trusts That Are Not Revocable

Trusts are legal agreements that allow a person to transfer assets to a third party, such as a family member or a charity, in order to ensure that the assets are managed in a specific way. A common misconception about trusts is that they are all revocable, meaning that the trustor can change the terms at any time. However, there are also irrevocable trusts, which are a great way to ensure that assets are used in the way that a person intended.

An irrevocable trust is created when assets are transferred to a trust that cannot be changed or revoked by the trustor. This means that the trustor cannot take back the assets that were transferred to the trust, although they may be able to receive income from the trust. The assets are managed by a trustee, which is a person or organization that has been given the power to manage the assets in a specific way. The trustee is responsible for making sure that the assets are used for their intended purpose, and they must report to the trustor regularly to provide an accounting of how the assets are being used.

What Are the Benefits of an Irrevocable Trust?

Irrevocable trusts are a great way to ensure that assets are used for the intended purpose and that the trustor has the control over how the assets are used. There are many different reasons why people choose to set up irrevocable trusts, and the benefits of these trusts can be different for each person.

Some of the benefits of an irrevocable trust include:

  • Protecting assets from creditors
  • Protecting assets from future spouses
  • Avoiding probate
  • Providing income for beneficiaries
  • Providing a tax benefit

These are just a few of the benefits of an irrevocable trust, and there may be other benefits that are relevant to the trustor's situation. If you are interested in setting up an irrevocable trust, it is important to work with someone who can help you understand all of the benefits that this trust can provide.

How Can a Trust Attorney Help?

Setting up an irrevocable trust is a complex process that requires a great deal of legal knowledge. An irrevocable trust is different than a revocable trust, and the process of setting one up is quite different as well. A trust attorney can help you set up an irrevocable trust so that you can benefit from the many benefits that this trust provides.

A trust attorney can help you determine the best way to set up an irrevocable trust, depending on the assets that you want to transfer to the trust. They can make sure that the trust is set up in a way that will benefit the trustor and the beneficiaries of the trust. A trust attorney can also help you maintain the trust, including making sure that the trustee is fulfilling their duties.
