Choose the right trust for your estate planning needs

If you’re considering wills and trusts, contact the Holt Law Firm in New Orleans & Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Our attorney will walk you through the various trust types and help you select the best one for your needs. You can choose from:

  • Revocable trusts: You are free to alter or amend provisions of this trust. Income earned is distributed to the grantor of the trust once it has been set up, but no property will transfer to your beneficiaries until your death.
  • Life insurance trusts: This trust cannot be amended. Upon the death of the insured, the trustee must invest the insurance profits and administer the trust to the beneficiaries.
  • Living trusts: Living trusts can be used to fund your children’s education.
  • Irrevocable trusts: Irrevocable trusts can’t be modified or terminated without the permission of the beneficiary. Once you have transferred your assets into the trust, you remove all ownership rights.
