How Can My Family Avoid Probate?

When it comes to avoiding probate, families have a few options. A deceased person's estate will not go through probate if their total assets are under $20,000 and they do not own real estate. If a house is jointly owned by multiple "joint tenants" upon one tenant's death, then the other tenant will assume ownership without going through probate. These are just a few examples of how some assets will avoid probate entirely.

If you or a loved one's estate is required to go through probate, our lawyer can create a plan to minimize your time and monetary investment. A living trust can help you transfer ownership of property and assets without the drawn out legal process. The trust becomes the owner of a person's property, which means that upon a person's death the property will not go through probate.
