San Diego Trust Attorney

In a trust the person who creates and funds the trust is both the settlor and almost always the original trustee. A trust can provide for the removal of the original trustee before his or her death and the replacement of that original trustee by the person who would normally not step in to take over the trust until the orginal trustee died. Expect San Diego trust attorney to ask you under what circumstances you would want a trusted family member or friend to take over as trustee of your trust while you are still alive.

Would you want your daughter to take over as trustee just upon her sole determination that you could not handle your own affairs? Would you want a majority vote of your three children before that determination is made? Would you want a medical doctor to have to give an affidavit before the successor trustee could take over from you while you are still alive. Or, would you rather that you remain as trustee as long as you are alive unless a court determines that you are incompetent? We discuss these various alternative under Nevada law with our clients.

Parents hate being asked how their estate plans should be changed if one of their children dies before they do. In most cases that doesn’t happen and it is unpleasant to think about. But attorneys get paid to think about unlikely situations.

Expect your attorney to ask questions like:

1.If your child dies before you would you want that child’s share to go to his or her children, or to your other children.

2. Yes, we know you want a particular person to be the successor trustee after you die, but if that person is not able to do so, who is your second choice? Who is your third choice? Who is your fourth choice?
