Trust Types

A trust can be an important tool for anyone looking for help managing money and property during his or her lifetime. A trust can also be a good tool to use in planning what will happen to your money and property when you pass away because a trust can allow your family to inherit from you without having to go through the long and expensive probate process. Finally, trusts can provide various tax benefits, including lowering your overall tax liability in some circumstances. FindLaw's Trust Types section contains in-depth information on the different types of trusts as well as a broad overview of trusts and the laws that govern them.
