How can an estate plan prevent probate of my estate?
A “Last Will and Testament” or a “Will” is a legal document that expresses your postmortem wishes. It includes many aspects regarding who you wish to inherit your assets, who will serve as personal representative or executor and administer your estate, and other important provisions.
What’s important to realize is that your Will is only administered in probate to the extent you die owning assets in your name. A properly drafted and executed estate plan will remove all assets from your name and provide for a smooth transition for your family not only after death (avoiding probate), but in the event you become incapacitated from injury or illness (guardianship). It’s a no-brainer for both financial as well as emotional reasons.
