It’s never too late to plan your estate with a revocable living trust, even when you are 91 years of age!
Sometimes family members need to encourage an aging mother or father to take measures to deal with important legal matters such as estate planning and creating a revocable living trust. As long as a person has all their faculties and is of sound mind, no matter how old they are they can legally execute a valid revocable living trust and other necessary estate planning documents. The burden of negotiating through the California probate process can be bypassed if an individual has properly executed and funded a revocable living trust. The revocable living trust allows for the transfer of all estate property through the trust and thus, avoids probate altogether.
Create a Revocable Living Trust to Avoid Probate
If you have an elderly mother, father or other family member who has assets over $166,250 and who has not created their estate plan to avoid probate, you may want to spend some time educating them about the benefits of creating a revocable living trust and/or will as well as the benefits of a power of attorney and healthcare directive. Being aware of the financial and legal burdens of proper estate planning and probate may be just enough to encourage your loved one to act in time too as this client was able to do for her mother. A few months after creating her revocable living trust, our client’s mother passed away. Having taken the initiative to help her aging mother properly plan for her estate, we helped our client quickly settle her mother’s estate after her death and our client saved thousands of dollars because she did not have to file probate.

“Well I was in the process of taking care of my mom who well at the time was about ninety-one and I knew my mom needed a revocable living trust because of the situation; and I didn’t want to go through the process of probate and all of that that’s involved legally if you don’t have a living trust.
I was able to go to A People’s Choice and they helped me uh… do all the paperwork and everything that was involved in that; and just help my mom get her papers put together so that it would be an easy process not only for her but for me.
And now that she’s passed away this September 9th, I’m so grateful that I had this revocable living trust and that A People’s Choice had walked me through that. And even now, they’re going to help me further as I have to do other paperwork involved in this process.
A People’s Choice made it so simple and the process so easy and just wonderful that I wish I would have done it sooner. I wish I would have made that decision much sooner and that way it would have been off my head and not a worry that I worried about for several years before I even did it.
And now that it’s finished and my mom is passed away, other issues that come up and they are helping me through that too, and I’m just really grateful for their help.
I would recommend A People’s Choice to anyone who needs their revocable living trust done or any kind of Will or anything that they have. I think a family trust is the way to go cause I’ve seen the benefit of that. Any kind of legal situation they can help you with it all, and without having to go to a very expensive attorney, and I really appreciate all the money that I’ve saved and the time and not having to tear my hair out over all the issues. And I really thank them very much and highly recommend them to anybody.”
