hen someone passes without a proper estate plan or alternative plan in place, their estate may have to pass through a court supervised process known as Probate. This process oversees the payment of liabilities and distribution of assets. Generally, probate can be an expensive and drawn-out process which we dedicate our practice to avoiding for our clients. Even with the increase in families using living trusts to avoid Probate, many estates still end up going through this court process.
