REVOCABLE TRUST

A Revocable Trust allows the person creating it to alter, amend or terminate the Trust and take back the assets funded in the Trust. The person creating the Trust has full control of their assets during their lifetime, with provision for what is to occur upon their death. 

A Revocable Trust is an estate planning option that manages and protects the assets of the individual (grantor) during their lifetime. The Revocable Trust can be amended or revoked as the grantor desires and is included in estate taxes. The Revocable Trust lays out the guidelines of operation for the Trust, what powers the trustee has or does not have, what the beneficiaries are to receive, and how the beneficiaries are to receive the trust property. If properly funded, the Revocable Trust bypasses and avoids probate, remains private and becomes irrevocable upon the grantor’s death. It also provides you with the ability to customize a plan specific to your circumstances and wishes regarding your legacy. 

The money or property held by the trustee for the benefit of someone else is called the principal of the Revocable Trust. The person or people benefiting from the Revocable Trust are the beneficiaries. The value of the principal can change due to the trustee’s expenses or the investment’s appreciation or depreciation in the financial markets. The collective assets comprise the trust fund, which may consist of the following:

  • Real Estate

  • Bank Accounts (checking, savings, money market, certificates of deposit)

  • Investment and retirement accounts

  • Automobiles

  •  Boats

  •  RVs

  • Motorcycles

  • Timeshares

  • Life insurance

Key take away advantages of a Revocable Trust:

  • Avoid the delay and costs of probate

  • Provides your trustee immediate access to funds in the Revocable Trust, which would be tied up for at least six months if you had to go through the probate process

  • Keep your assets and beneficiaries private from public information, which occurs in probate

  • Control of distribution of assets to minors and/or young adults who are not ready to handle a substantial inheritance

  • In conjunction with a Last Will and Testament (sometimes referred to as a Pour Over Will), you can make provisions for who will care for you minor children, as well as oversee the funds that will provide for them immediately upon your passing, with no delays, which would occur in the probate process

“I moved to KY in 2017 from out of state, forced to embark on the process of restarting my life after experiencing several stressful life events in rapid succession. Not knowing anyone in Louisville, I relied on resources like Google to help me select various providers, including an estate planner. While I entered into many of these new arrangements with my eyes wide open, I was really taken by how easy it was to work with the Stone legal team. They provide a graceful mix of trustworthy competence and a quick compassionate grasp of the complexities of my particular situation. They listen and have worked effectively with me to achieve what appears to be an optimum solution for the successful execution of my future estate goals. I feel fortunate to have them as partners in my life.”
