What Is a Revocable Living Trust in Arizona?
A revocable living trust in Arizona is a living trust that can be changed or canceled as long as the Grantor is alive. By placing your assets in a revocable trust, it will help to avoid probate (which can be expensive and can take a long period of time) while giving you control of your assets while you’re still living. A revocable living trust can be a much more efficient transfer of assets. In most cases, however, it remains subject to federal estate taxes.

What Are the Benefits of Arizona Revocable Trusts?
An Arizona Revocable Trust gives you complete control over your assets while you are alive and how they will be distributed after you pass away. One of its primary advantages is that it allows your estate to avoid the needlessly expensive, time-consuming, frustrating, and public distribution of assets involved in the Arizona probate process. A Revocable Living Trust also lets you make adjustments to the management and distribution of your assets as your financial and personal situations change over time.
Other benefits of a Revocable Living Trust include:
- It can be designed to provide your loved ones with asset protection.
- It can allow for separation of assets, which may be useful for blended families.
- It allows for continuous financial management. If you become incapacitated, your trustee can continue managing your assets without the need to have a court-appointed conservator.
