An irrevocable trust in Florida is an agreement among a settlor, trustee, and beneficiaries that cannot be revoked or amended. The trustmaker, or settlor, cannot take back property they transfer to an irrevocable trust. An irrevocable trust allows the person who creates the trust, the settlor, to manage their assets while avoiding probate and providing asset protection from future creditors. A Florida irrevocable trust can also help reduce estate taxes for those subject to the federal estate tax. Irrevocable trusts also protect the deceased estate from the creditors of their beneficiaries.
Yes. We draft pour-over wills that put anything that isn’t in your trust into the trust. As you go through life, you may forget to title assets, or well-meaning bank clerks can undo work towards funding your trust. For this reason, a pour-over will is a catch-all to ensure that any assets that aren’t in the trust get put into it. Our office can also assist in your catch-all will creation.
