Creating a trust is a wonderful way to protect your children and other loved ones. Trusts are an important component of careful estate planning. Attorney Michael Hanks has been assisting clients throughout Northern California with their estate planning needs for more than 30 years. He is pleased to assist clients with:
- Revocable living trusts
- Irrevocable trusts and asset protection trusts
- Husband and wife credit shelter trusts
- Special needs trusts
- Life insurance trusts
- Trusts with Medi-Cal planning provisions
While the creator of a trust is alive, the administration of a trust is often a fairly straight forward matter. After the creator of a trust passes away, however, there are many issues that require the attention of an experienced trust lawyer.
Our firm is pleased to offer comprehensive trust administration services including beneficiary notification, liquidation of assets, required court approvals, resolving trust ambiguities and disputes, managing distribution of property, financial paperwork and receipts, trust interpretation, resolving out of state property issues, dealing with family disputes, sub trust creation and funding (including marital bypass and exemption trusts when necessary) and tax issues.
