The greatest benefit of a living trust is the avoidance of probate. This document is very much like a will in that you instruct how your final affairs are handled and who you want to receive your assets after you die. But unlike a will, a living trust does not go through probate and it gives you, not the courts, control over you assets.
In probate, the process takes between 9 months and 2 years before your heirs can inherit. With a living trust, it is dramatically quicker and only takes weeks, generally. If you own property in other states, a living trust is especially advantageous, because you will avoid multiple probates.
In addition to being very lengthy, probate can be quite costly. Probate administration is often estimated to cost between 3 and 10% of the estate’s value. By creating a living trust and opting out of the probate system, you can avoid expensive court costs and legal fees. Living trusts are easy to set up, maintain, and can be changed or canceled at any time. Also, they are more difficult than a will to contest, because it requires such a person to file a civil lawsuit.
The process begins by hiring a competent attorney who can handle the probate for you. As your probate attorney, we will meet with you personally to determine what needs to be done, efficiently file all court documents, and move the probate process along towards the earliest possible conclusion.
