A trust helps to avoid the costly and lengthy proceedings of probate court. Trust laws are set in place to allow the designation of trustees to handle your estate before your death in the event of your mental or physical disability. Trusts are beneficial in protecting assets from creditors. They allow you to pass property to your children to hold in trust for your grandchildren, without subjecting the property to two rounds of estate taxes (with some limitations).
