Most people don’t want to think about death while they are alive. As a result, many are left at the time of their death without key financial pieces in place such as life insurance and a living trust. Below are 6 main reasons people get a living trust.........
1. To Protect Property for Beneficiaries Upon Death
2. To Manage Property Upon Incapacitation
3. To Avoid Probate (costly, time-consuming court process)
4. To Protect Privacy (your life's details are made public through probate)
5. To Avoid a Will Contest
6. To Reduce or Eliminate Estate Taxes

This is one you don't want to take lightly...particularly in California with the Probate laws. And especially if you have kids!
