Creating a Living Trust in California

A living trust is a document that places some or all of your assets in the control of a trust during your lifetime.

Common assets that are put in living trust include:

  • Houses
  • Businesses
  • Bank accounts
  • Investment accounts
  • Personal property

When you place your assets in a trust, you do not lose control over them. You maintain the ability to use, invest, transfer, sell, and borrow them. For example, if you place your home in a living trust, you would still be able to live in it, rent it out, or put it up for sale.

The benefit of a living trust is that you can decide when and how your assets are distributed to your beneficiaries. Upon your death, the individual you have chosen as the trustee will ensure that the assets in the living trust are passed onto the people you have designated as recipients.

WHAT DO OUR CLIENTS
HAVE TO SAY?

  • To say that Joy Kraft-Miles is an expert is an understatement.

    “Divorce is not an experience that you look forward to. It's also messy and very stressful because of the emotions and people involved. For me, hiring a lawyer was a necessity not because I wanted to penalize my ex, but because I wanted an expert that would help me navigate the cumbersome process. To say that Joy Kraft-Miles is an expert is an understatement. She is a consummate professional with a solid reputation at the Chatsworth Courthouse. Initially, I tried to tackle the process myself by going to the self-help center and filling out the documents on my own. This turned out to be overwhelming. She took my case even though I had a pending DV case. I spoke with four lawyers prior to Joy who would not take my case because of the DV. She whipped through my paperwork in one meeting and told me my case could be brought to resolution with my help. I listened to her advice, asked millions of questions and continuously asked her and her legal secretary Marcos to clarify terms, rulings, and paperwork when I did not understand what was going on. I trusted Joy from the first meeting. I think that is really important; to trust the person that you are working with. She was exceptional to work with under the circumstances. I highly recommend Joy as she has the highest integrity and is very professional.”

    Lisa

  • In her office she is attentive & mild mannered, however in the courtroom, she is like a JUNKYARD DOG !

    “Child custody and divorce cases can be costly, anyone going into one should know that up front. That being said, Joy Kraft has been extremely reasonable & willing to work with me. The initial law firm I used was much more expensive & yielded zero results. Iin fact, I believe even hurt my case from the start. Joy took over my case & since then things have been moving in my direction & getting much better. My case is a child custody case & when it initially started (before Joy took over) I only had 6hrs of visitation per week with my child. I now have 3 overnights & 2 weekdays every other week & my case is most certainly not over so more time is on it's way. I went from about 5% time with my child to about 30% with more time most certainly on the way. Joy pays attention to detail & she knows my case just as well as I do. In her office she is attentive & mild-mannered, however in the courtroom, she is like a JUNKYARD DOG ! She is quit impressive in the courtroom & she knows family law just as well as she will know your case. I could not be happier with my choice of representation. I feel very confident knowing I have a lawyer who knows my case & is fighting tooth & nail on my behalf. I highly recommend Joy Kraft to anyone going through a Family Law issue”

    Anthony

  • When working with Joy, I never felt rushed or like I was just another client.

    “She took the time to explain things so I could understand what was going on at all times between her and my ex-husband's attorney. ”

    Tracy

  • I worked with both Leslie and Marcia and was very impressed with their thoroughness and attention to detail.

    “These attorneys are easy to work with, and definitely have the best interests of their clients at the forefront of their practice!”

    Ashley

  • They are very professional and efficient.

    “They are quick to respond to all my questions and concerns, I highly recommend them, they definitely have the clients best interests in mind.”
