Wills & Trusts

Wills & Trusts in Utah

Estate Planning, including Wills and Trusts, are often affected by divorce or the death of a spouse. A divorce will render null and void many provision of your existing estate planning documents. The death of a spouse, which does not effect the enforcement of existing estate planning documents, may, however, trigger document provisions which you should review with an attorney.

Having both a will and trust created is a good way to save money on the administration of your estate after your death. A will sets out those persons you want to administer your estate, care for any minor children, and generally manage your assets and debts. A trust can hold your assets and reduce or even eliminate the need to have your estate probated, a sometimes costly event.

As an attorney, I can assist you in the drafting, execution, and enforcement of Wills and Trusts.
