How a Phoenix Trust Administration Attorney Can Help

A trustee has a legal duty to carry out the terms of a trust exactly as stated in the documents that created the trust. Unfortunately, trustees often have very little experience interpreting or administering complex legal documents. That is why a Phoenix trust administration attorney may be needed to help ensure that this process is completed properly. If a trustee fails to properly carry out their duties, this could open them up to liability and potential litigation from the beneficiaries of the trust.

An attorney will help ensure that a trust is established appropriately and that the administrator understands their obligations. In addition, the attorney will help administer assets within the trust according to the documents.

Understanding Trust Administration in Arizona

Carrying out a trust’s objectives can be complicated. These tasks largely depend on the design of the trust and whether or not the individual or individuals who created the trust are currently living. During the creator’s lifetime, a revocable living trust is generally flexible and easy to administer. However, after the creator of a trust passes away, the assets will need to be liquidated and distributed or held in trust. When the creators of a trust are no longer living, a third party will have to step in and carry out the provisions of the trust.

Families in Arizona are opting, now more than ever, to establish revocable living trusts to help dispose of their estate upon incapacity or death of the trust creators. Revocable trusts can be useful when helping to:

  • Minimize estate taxes
  • Provide an orderly disposition of finances and property
  • Avoid the costs or delays associated with probate court proceedings
