Probate can be a lengthy and expensive process. It can take months, and sometimes years, after the death of a loved one to completely distribute assets through probate. A total of about five percent (5%) of the estate can be paid to your attorney and executor for their services. Simply having a will does not avoid probate, and everything that happens during the probate process becomes public record.

Revocable living trusts
Beneficiary designations on:
IRA and retirement plans
Life insurance and annuities

Joint tenancy with right of survivorship
Community property with right of survivorship
