Your last Will and Testament will provide for your chosen beneficiaries to receive your assets upon your death. Your last Will and Testament must be probated through the court system.
A Revocable Trust allows your assets to avoid the probate process while you retain full power and control over your assets. The Revocable Trust can be modified at any time during your life as situations change. However, your Revocable Trust will not protect your assets against creditors, business failures, bankruptcies, or nursing home and long-term care costs.
An Irrevocable Trust provides many of the benefits of a Revocable Trust while also protecting your assets from nursing home and assisted living expenses. The Irrevocable Trust can help you qualify for Medicaid in the event you should need a nursing home, while protecting your assets for future generations.
How you structure your business entity will determine how it operates, the way in which it (and you) are taxed, and whether your personal assets become subject to the liabilities of the entity.
This Agreement will govern all aspects of your business: from determining who has the power to enter into contracts, to confidentiality agreements and restrictions on competition of the business partners, to permitted transferees and rights of first purchase, to how to deal with disagreements and exit strategies for a business partner.
