What is the purpose of a trust?

Nevada residents who have not developed estate plans may not realize that a sudden death could result in legal proceedings for survivors who must deal with assets and the probate process. A trust is a planning tool, helpful as a supplement or replacement for a will. While it serves a similar purpose to a will, it might allow the estate to avoid probate.
