Irrevocable trusts are an important part of building an effective estate plan.

With a New York City estate planning attorney at Melnik Law Group, PLLC to guide you through the process of setting up a trust or trusts that address your unique needs, you can feel confident that you are one step closer to a foolproof estate plan.

What is an Irrevocable Trust?

A trust is a legal arrangement made wherein a party (the trustee) is entrusted with property or money for the benefit of another (the beneficiary). An irrevocable trust is a type of trust that cannot be modified or terminated without the permission of the beneficiary. Irrevocable trusts are primarily set up in order to protect one's estate and limit taxes. Because the person who sets up the trust (the grantor) has essentially removed all ownership or authority over the property, it is essentially removed from the grantor's estate. An irrevocable trust may include different types of property: cash, life insurance policies, investment assets or a business.

An irrevocable trust may offer numerous benefits to the grantor, enabling him or her to provide for loved ones, protect valuable assets from taxation and avoid lengthy probate upon his or her passing. They are also helpful for the parent of a dependant or disabled adult child, enabling the grantor to ensure the financial stability of the beneficiary.
