Wills, Trust & Estate Planning Attorney
in Welsh, Louisiana
Everyone that owns any assets, such as a home, car, bank account, investments, or personal possessions, has an estate. It’s important to create legal documents placing your things in order before something happens to you. Charles Bull has the experience to create a comprehensive will, trust, living trust, powers of attorney, advance health care directive, and comprehensive estate planning.
What is a Will?
A will is a document that provides the directions for how you want your affairs handled and assets distributed at the time of your death. Upon your death, your will is sent to probate for the court to review. The Probate or Succession court supervises the distribution of your assets according to your instructions and wishes. With no will, the court will distribute your assets as they see fit, which could leave your loved ones dealing with a lengthy
What is a Trust?
A trust is a legal document containing your wishes for your assets, dependents, and heirs. A trust is a flexible instrument that can accomplish a myriad of purposes, such as:
• Create end-of-life instructions that can bypass probate.
• Appoint a trustee to manage and distribute your assets according to your wishes.
• Appoint a guardian should you become incapacitated or unable to manage your affairs.
In contrast to a will, a trust goes into effect when it is signed and notarized.
At the Law Offices of Charles Bull, I understand that estate planning is not always at the forefront of your mind. Life gets busy, and sometimes things get pushed to the side.
