You may spend a significant amount of time determining the best way to provide for your family members after you pass away. Figuring out the type of plan that provides the most benefit possible from your assets may require some significant thought.
You decide that your estate plan will include a trust. It could be a (revocable or irrevocable) living trust, a South Dakota special spousal trust or a decanting trust, among others, that may suit your needs. Regardless of the type of trust you choose, it will need a trustee. Deciding who should care for your family's future may be the most difficult and thought provoking part of the whole process.
