A Living Trust has become an essential tool for those who want to preserve and protect their assets across generations.

When it comes to asset protection, one of the most frequently asked questions is, “How does a Living Trust work?” Its main objective is to maintain assets within the generational line, providing an effective solution to protect your children from divorces and creditors. Through this vehicle, the designation of how and who will receive the assets as part of an inheritance is established, thus safeguarding the assets for the future.

A Living Trust consists of three parts:

  1. The grantor: also known as the settlor, is the creator of the trust or agreement and authorizes the trustee the rights to assets, estate, or property.
  2. Trustee: responsible for overseeing and managing the trust assigned to them by the grantor.
  3. Beneficiary: the person who receives the assets from the trustee, administering the trust on behalf of the grantor. In many cases, children or family members are listed as beneficiaries. There can be more than one beneficiary in the agreement.

The primary goal of this legal instrument is to avoid probate processes, offering a more efficient and less expensive alternative to traditional wills. By establishing a Living Trust, you achieve more effective estate planning and reduce susceptibility to legal challenges.

In addition to safeguarding the inheritance for future generations, the Living Trust provides an additional layer of protection for the spouse. This mechanism ensures that even in situations where spouses face financial or legal problems, common children will receive the planned inheritance without complications.
