Avoid Probate through Advanced Planning

Probate is the legal process in which an estate is distributed after a person becomes deceased if they do not have a trust. Even in the simplest of circumstances, this process can take months or even longer. It also involves court costs, administrative fees and legal intricacies. An estate plan that involves individuals with special needs; if unmarried partners or parents are involved; if substantial property and investments are at stake: The complexities of advanced planning are significant in all of these scenarios.

You can significantly reduce or eliminate the burden of probate through advanced planning. You can also ensure more of your wealth is distributed to the people and causes you identify in your state plan.

When large wealth is involved, there is typically a large tax responsibility to account for. There is no reason to pay unnecessary taxes on your estate after your death. By planning now and discussing your situation with an experienced advanced planning lawyer in San Jose, you can ensure that your trust will be legally binding and sheltered from unnecessary taxes.
