Estate Planning: Wills & Trusts
Did you know that you that when you die you leave an estate? Any assets that you own and are solely in your name (unless everyone else on the title have passed away) qualifies as an estate. A will alone is not enough to protect your estate from being probated in order to pass your assets down to your loved ones. It is only under special circumstances that your estate can avoid being sent to probate court.
Probate court is a very costly and timely process. While there are a few ways that this can be avoided, however all of these need to be completed before you die. Planning ahead can help your loved ones avoid the unbelievable expense and amount of time it takes, and you are able to have a say in how things are done after you’re gone.
