Alabama Trusts Webinar Series

Alabama Trusts Part I (On-Demand):
A trust is traditionally used for minimizing estate taxes and can offer other benefits as part of a well-crafted estate plan. A trust allows a third party – the trustee – to hold assets on behalf of a beneficiary. The trust can be arranged in many ways and can specify exactly how and when the assets pass to the beneficiaries. What are the advantages of a trust? The use of a trust avoids probate. It allows the beneficiaries of the trust to get access to the trust assets quicker than if the assets were transferred by will. The use of a trust avoids courts fees and, potentially, reduces estate taxes as well.

In the first part of this two-part webinar, you'll learn the basics of a trust, its jargon, and what laws govern its creation. You'll also get practical advice and learn how a trust works for your client.

Agenda:

  • What is a trust?
  • What are the origins of trusts?
  • Why create a trust?
  • Basic jargon of trusts
  • What laws govern trust creation?
  • How do you explain trusts to a client?


Alabama Trusts Part II (On-Demand):

What type of trust is best for your client? An irrevocable trust cannot be altered, changed, modified or revoked after its creation (absent extreme extenuating circumstances). A “living” trust, created during the lifetime of the grantor, can be modified or revoked. A spendthrift trust does not allow the beneficiary to sell or pledge his or her interest in the trust and is out of the reach of the beneficiaries’ creditors until it is distributed to the beneficiary. In the second part of this two-part webinar, the presenter will discuss what to put into the trust and the different types of trusts that may be created.

Agenda: 

  • Revocable Trusts v. Irrevocable Trusts 
  • What should go into the trust? 
  • Is anything "automatically" put into a trust? 
  • What is an "executory trust"? 
  • "Living trust"? 
  • "Spendthrift trust"?
