Travel trusts can leave a legacy of meaningful experience

Kent readers may have tuned into previous discussions about the increasing trend toward using estate planning as a vehicle for imparting social and ethical values to younger generations. Those with a passion for culture and travel or those with a desire to maintain international family bonds might be interested in considering a form of revocable trust designed just for that purpose.

Seattle living trusts need to change with life events

As Seattle residents may know, the use of trusts in estate planning can offer a number of advantages, not the least of which is to avoid the expensive and cumbersome probate process. In order to serve its purpose effectively, a trust needs to evolve over time in order to account for changing life circumstances.

Now is a good time to review Kent business owner estate plans

As readers in the Seattle area may know, the current gift tax exemption stands to expire at the end of the year, and so far, Congress has shown no particular interest in acting to maintain the current exemption level. Estate planning professionals have been urging people to consider their options for taking advantage of the exemption before the end of the year, but business owners need to act sooner than others to make sure not to miss out on potential inheritance tax advantages while they last.

Jackson's will challenge provides lessons for Kent residents

Kent residents are undoubtedly familiar with the music and public spectacle provided by Michael Jackson. Now, years after Jackson's death, ongoing disputes over his will offer Kent residents with an opportunity to learn about proper estate planning.

Revocable trusts may be a good option for Kent estates

When Kent residents think about planning ahead to establish an inheritance for their heirs, executing a will may be the first thing that comes to mind. Although the traditional will continues to be a staple of basic estate planning, an increasing number of estate planning professionals are recommending a revocable trust as an alternative.
