Avoiding probate is a common goal of individuals today. One way to avoid probate is to create a trust. A trust is another form of an estate planning tool that allows for assets to be distributed during or even after the settlor’s life. A settlor is the individual or in some cases multiple people who create a trust. Creating a trust allows for a trustee to be named and control the assets held within the trust.
