Have Children, Have a Trust

From our experience we have discovered that it is important that every couple who has children establish a trust. However, since many couples do not know exactly what a trust is and what it is intended to do, they are under the impression that they do not need one. A trust is an enduring way to protect your children and their assets. The alternative, a guardianship, is more expensive to administer, is restrictive, and terminates at age 18. With a trust, you can set the guidelines to ensure your children’s futures.
