Administration of a Trust

Increasingly, California families are opting to establish a revocable living trust to provide for the disposition of their assets upon the death or incapacity of the settlers (the creators) of the Trust, which can be an effective tool.


Revocable trusts can be used to help with:

  • Avoiding the delays/costs associated with a formal probate proceeding
  • Potentially minimizing estate taxes
  • Providing for the orderly disposition and management of finances and property without judicial intervention

While the revocable living trust is very effective in doing the foregoing, the trust must still be "administered" upon the death or incapacity of the settlor(s).
