Avoiding Probate With An Estate Plan – Riverside
A Will must be probated, meaning it has to go through a mandated court process, by law, which can be expensive and time-consuming. Many do not know that transferring assets to loved ones based on a Will is not effective, nor is it a quick way to handle your state of business. In addition, all information that is relative to the decedent’s property and the beneficiaries that receive it can be accessed by anyone as it goes on public record. Compared to a Trust Administration, which is processed through a private party provides the trustee with immediate access to the trust assets and management of the trust.
