Why Would Someone Use a Family Trust in Estate Planning?

POSTED ON: February 27, 2024 BY: Kyle Krull
A family trust is used to support multiple family members. Not all families are the same. I have seen more than 3,000 enter my office over the last 30 years. Some have close relational bonds.

How Can Life Insurance Work With My Estate Plan?
