Trust & Probate Administration Attorney

Estate Planning Firm in Flint, MI

If you plan to leave any type of money, property, or assets to family or other individuals after you pass away, it is important that you draft a trust. Any trust that you put in place must have a trustee named, who will be in charge of the administration. Their role as trustee involves a number of different responsibilities.

You must be able to rely on the individual who you name, know that they will follow your instructions, and that they will be able to comprehend the documents you draft.

A skilled Flint estate planning attorney can assist you with choosing and naming a trustee for your estate plan.

A few of the responsibilities that a trustee may have include:

  • Taxes: Filing the required annual tax return forms and paying all associated taxes for the trust and account.
  • Accounting: Ensuring that all of the expenditures, income, and distributions are accounted for properly.
  • Distributions: Making decisions about when distributions to the beneficiaries are made and for how much.
  • Delegations: Deciding what duties to delegate and who to, as well as overseeing the responsibilities.
  • Maintaining the terms: Upholding all of the terms which are listed by the grantor in the trust.
  • Investments: Establishing an investment strategy and choosing worthwhile investments for a portion of the money.
  • Fiduciary responsibility: Handling and monitoring all financial transactions of the money which are listed in the trust.
