Types, Features and Taxation of Trusts

The areas of trust planning and trust creation are vast and limited only by the imagination of the trust-makers, their attorney and the law. Trusts can be written and created to include a wide variety of features and accomplish many goals. So, while there may be a general form to certain commonly used trusts, no two trusts are ever the same. Somewhat like fingerprints, trusts are unique to each individual.

Estate Planning for the NonTraditional Family

No two people are alike, and no two families are alike. More and more often, families are being created and shaped in nontraditional ways and continue to change the way we think of families, such as single-parent families, blended families, same-sex households and children as caregivers for aging parents. In a way, nontraditional families are more the norm than the exception.
