The nature of life itself is such that there are things that can make your brain hurt.
Take the example of a Japanese puzzle box. These tiny boxes made of pliable wood, worked to perfection, are beautiful to look at. However, in order to get to the inside, there is a specific and incredibly intricate puzzle involved.
There are panels to slide, clicks to be heard, and small buttons to be pressed. Miss one step in the order and you’ll have to start over.
Similarly, estate planning in Staten Island can be complicated in the beginning. You assume that signing the papers for a trust is enough for protecting your estate. Once you consult with an estate planning lawyer in Staten Island, you’ll realize there is more to it.
Having the papers proving your estate plan is just that: papers. Albeit, they are expensive papers, but they hold no true value.
So how do you add value to a trust?
The answer is in funding the trust. You fund the trust with whatever estate you have been able to accumulate over the course of your life. Real estate or real property is one of the assets you fund your trust with.
