Estate Planning FAQ's

Question: What is a living trust?

Contact an Iowa estate planning and probate lawyer representing clients in Iowa City, Iowa today to schedule your initial consultation.


Answer: Under a living (or a “revocable inter vivos”) trust, a person transfers ownership of their assets to another entity while alive. The terms of the trust instruct the entity on how to manage the person’s assets before and after death. This allows the person to avoid the probate process, and the possibility of a court-appointed conservatorship upon incapacity.
