Trusts and Trust Provisions



 



Welcome to LawShelf’s badge program on trusts and trust provisions. In this badge program, we’ll introduce you to the world of trusts and the amazing benefits they can bestow. This program is of low to moderate difficulty (the tax sections are where the moderate difficulty comes in) and no prior knowledge of estate planning or probate law is required.

Trusts have acquired popular reputations as rich people’s devices. We hear terms like “trust fund babies” and think of excessive family wealth being secured for generations
