Orland Park Trusts and Wills
Hi, my name’s Tom Oloffson. I’m an estate planning attorney and I serve clients in the Orland Park area. Thank you for coming to my website. I have something very special that I’d like to give you, but first I’d like to tell you a little bit about my practice.
What is the difference between a living trust and a living will? When is the best time to get a will or trust?
A living will is a poor name for a document that’s a health care directive. It tells people what you want done in your last days of life. It is nothing really to do with a will at all and it’s a very unfortunate name. But it’s the name that it was given and it’s the name that people know it by. So it is the document that tells doctors and your family what you want done in case of a terminal illness. Put me on life support; don’t put me on life support. That sort of a thing. It’s often mistaken for a do not resituate order which is a different thing. And it’s also often confused with a living trust. People will often ask me what’s the difference between a living trust and a living will. A living trust is a document that is used to avoid probate to keep your assets out of court after you die and to avoid guardianship during your lifetime. And the living will is the thing that says don’t put me on life support. So they really are different but because the names are so close they’re often confused. This is common; many people ask that same question.
Now what I’d like you to do is go to my website and find out how you can get a free review of your existing trust documents to see if they come up to our standards. I can also arrange for you to get free access to twenty videos that answer your most often asked questions. They give you some guidance as to what you should be looking for. Now if you don’t have existing trust documents or you have a particular question that has been bothering you, you’re welcome to call my phone number which is 773-905-1193 and we’ll set up a complimentary consultation.
