Probate is simply a method of transferring your assets to
your heirs upon your death. Probate involves filing papers
in Court, and then submitting the management of the estate
to the general supervision of the Court. Probate typically
requires an attorney. There has been a great deal of misinformation
demonizing the alleged evils of probate, portraying it as a
thing to be avoided at all costs. In general, probate is not
as bad as has been portrayed, as most probates are finalized
within six months of filing, usually heirs can receive at least
some of the assets well prior to that time, and the attorney
fees for an uncomplicated probate are very reasonable. That
being said, there are some effective methods of avoiding probate,
and a good estate planning attorney will help you decide whether
any of these methods would be feasible for you.
