Preventing Probate

One of the main reasons to have an ironclad will is to protect your estate and family from probate court. When an estate enters probate, the court takes control of the assets, and it is up to a judge to determine how these assets are divided. This leads to needing our probate attorney and a lengthy legal battle for your loved ones in an already stressful time.

When we develop your estate plan and will, we strive to ensure it holds up to scrutiny and prevents your assets from entering probate court. Reach out to our office to learn more about preventing your estate from entering probate and protect the future for your family.
