Setting up an estate plan is a serious matter for most people. Some people want to ensure that everything they have will go to the people who they want the items to go to. One way to do this as quickly and as inexpensively as possible after you pass away is to set up trusts. These are very useful tools that can be used with a will or in lieu of a will.
When you are creating your estate plan, you might think that you should just include all of your assets into your will. That isn't always the best option because some assets aren't appropriate to include in a will. If you include certain items in the will, you might make the probate process more difficult for your heirs.
