When it comes to estate planning in Maryland, there are many misconceptions. Over the years, I have noticed some common themes in the way some people think about Trusts. In this post, I will discuss 5 common misconceptions I regularly encounter when helping people in Bethesda and Upper Marlboro get their financial affairs in order.
Misconception #1: Revocable Living Trusts are only for large estates. No. Revocable Living Trusts are for anyone who wants to avoid costly conservatorship and probate proceedings. In appropriate cases, people with small estates can benefit from a Revocable Living Trust. People with larger estates can benefit even more.
