Probate & Estate Planning

What is Probate and Estate Planning?

Probate and estate planning are crucial components of managing one's assets and affairs both during life and after death. Probate refers to the legal process through which a deceased person's assets are distributed and debts are settled under court supervision. This process ensures that the deceased's wishes, as outlined in their will or determined by state law if there is no will, are carried out properly. On the other hand, estate planning involves making decisions about how to manage and distribute assets during one's lifetime and after death. It encompasses creating a will, establishing trusts, naming beneficiaries for life insurance policies and retirement accounts, and potentially minimizing estate taxes. Effective estate planning not only ensures that assets are distributed according to one's wishes but also helps minimize family disputes, reduce tax burdens, and provide for loved ones in the event of incapacity or death.
