When someone deceases without a will or trust it goes through Probate and distributed according to state law. Probate is not desirable because of the following reasons:

  • Cost – Under probate, you may be subjected to estate taxes, lawyer fees, and court costs
  • Time – The process may take anywhere from six months to as long as two years to close
  • Privacy – When your estate undergoes probate, the information and value of your assets become public record
