PALM DESERT – AVOID PROBATE WITH AN ESTATE PLAN
In order for a Will to avoid probate, it must go through the court process, mandated by law, which is expensive and timely. Many people don’t know that transferring a loved one’s assets based on a Will is not efficient, nor is it a quick way to handle your business. Additionally, all information pertaining to the decedent’s assets and the beneficiaries that are to receive them is a matter of public record and can be accessed by anyone. By comparison, a Trust Administration is a private process that gives the trustee immediate access to the assets and management of the trust.
