What is the Difference between a Living Will and a Living Trust?

A “Living Will” is a document that describes you wishes regarding life support if you are ever in a terminal condition or irreversible coma (think Terri Schiavo). As mentioned above, a “Living Trust” deals with your assets either in the event of incapacity or at death. Both are very important and necessary parts of a proper estate plan and both are included in our Trust Package.
