Lisle Trusts Attorney


Creating Trusts to Serve Your Family's Needs

A trust is an important tool for anyone who wants to protect and manage their assets for future generations or other designated beneficiaries. A trust can be the principal component of your overall estate planning package, or it may serve as a separate tool when preparing for nursing home expenses and other elderly care needs.

Carol Nolan, a Naperville estate planning attorney, can talk to you about the benefits of establishing a trust. The benefits of setting up a trust include:

  • Providing a secure way to protect and preserve assets for future generations
  • Allowing you to keep your monetary funds and other assets while avoiding estate taxes
  • Allowing you to set aside funds for a disabled child without compromising government benefits
  • Avoiding the cost, time, and hassle of probate court

To learn more about the benefits of trusts and whether establishing one is right for you, call Carol A. Nolan, Attorney at Law at 630-668-6600. From her offices in Lisle, Ms. Nolan serves clients in DuPage County, Will County, Kane County, Cook County, and throughout Illinois.

Types of Trusts

Not all trusts are alike. Each one serves a unique purpose and helps clients accomplish different goals. Some examples of trusts include:

  • Revocable living trust: allows the creator to make decisions regarding the management and distribution of assets, while avoiding probate
  • Irrevocable trust: safeguards assets from demanding and financially abusive family members while also minimizing estate taxes and avoiding probate
  • Third-party special needs trust: provides funds for disabled children or other family members while protecting their eligibility for government benefits
  • OBRA special needs trust: sets aside funds so clients with substantial assets can qualify for Medicaid
  • Children's trust: allows parents to set aside money for their children and designate when the children can access it; often incorporated into revocable living trusts
  • Credit shelter trust (AB trust): protects assets from the estate tax upon the creator's death

The trust(s) that will be best for your situation depends upon a variety of factors, including your assets, your beneficiaries, and your life circumstances. Carol A. Nolan has devoted her entire career to estate planning. She can effectively assist you in establishing a trust that meets your financial needs.
