Comparison: Experience WITH Protective Trusts for Children versus WITHOUT Protective Trusts for Children
A Living Will is a document which allows an individual to authorize his or her physician to withhold or discontinue extraordinary means or artificial nutrition or hydration if his or her condition is terminal and incurable or if diagnosed as being in a persistent vegetative state.
Assets held within a revocable trust are not protected from creditors. Because the settlor can revoke the trust at any time, he is deemed to have control over the assets. Therefore, the revocable trust is disregarded.
