About Estate Plans and Probate

If you are contemplating obtaining an estate plan then you may greatly benefit from the legal assistance of our firm. It is important for you to understand estate planning and how it affects the probate process. Probate is the process by which a court determines where and to whom, property shall be distributed either pursuant to a will or if there is no will, then pursuant to the laws of intestacy.

The probate process is undesirable because it is expensive and time-consuming. One way to bypass the probate process is through use of a trust. An individual creates a trust and then transfers his or her assets to the trust. When that individual dies, there is nothing for the court system to probate because all of the assets are titled in the name of the trust. The successor trustee then distributes the assets to the beneficiaries without any involvement of the court. In addition, in certain situations, the creation of a trust can help minimize estate taxes on one's death.
