The advantages and disadvantages of Living Trusts in Louisiana will be focused on in this blog.  Your comments are welcomed, but please keep them to the point and courteous.  Living Trusts can be an excellent planning tool when used under the right circumstances for certain clients.  However, each situation must be examined to determine what is best under all facts and circumstances for each particular client. Some Living Trust advantages that are touted by a few Attorneys and certain companies selling Trust documents are illusory.  Living Trusts do have their benefits and are excellent planning tools when properly used.  I will provide some background as to typical situations and the factors to consider, but always consult a licensed Louisiana attorney who can examine your specific situation in making your planning decisions. For a general discussion of trusts and estate planning please see the section of my main site at www.aymondlaw.com/Trusts.html.

    • Not that I am aware of, but you can certainly not accept visitors in the hospital You would need to speak to the hospital personnel for this. A living will would not be appropriate for either purpose. A medical power of attorney may help in the event you are not able to express your wishes to hospital personnel. As to who can come to your funeral, make your wishes known to family members, but I am sure you also do not want a scene at your funeral. It is a difficult situation that can’t be solved with a Last Will, but it can certainly express your wishes and that may help.
