Probate is a process that your attorney will initiate to validate a will. A lot of people wish to avoid probate for a number of reasons. The reasons for avoiding probate include:
- How slow it is
- How much money it costs
- How public it is
Probate takes time. Sometimes years, particularly if the will is complicated or has a lot to debate over. Probate isn’t free. It costs money, and people generally want to avoid added expenses, especially when there is a threat of expenses for an extended period of time. Also, the process is all public record, which might bother some people who wish for their business to remain private.
Our Stillwater estate planning lawyers can help you understand this and plan in an easier way.
Avoiding Probate | Importance of an Estate Planning Attorney
While you certainly could choose not to plan, we strongly advise against it. We want to protect you and your loved ones from having to deal with a lot of stress after your passing. Things get very complicated if there are no wills or trusts or anything planned ahead.
A Stillwater estate planning lawyer will be able to advise you on how to best handle all of your affairs in the way they should properly be handled. We take away the stress of planning for you and the stress of dealing with everything for your family.
This is what we do best. It’s not wise to go to someone who handles family law or DUI cases and ask them if they will also do your estate planning. Choose someone who does this all the time, not someone who will figure it out as they go. Estate planning is so important. You wouldn’t want it to go badly. Work with a lawyer who you can trust to get it right.
