How do I prevent informal probate?

How can I prevent informal probate?

  1. You can give away all your assets before you die.
  2. You can name your beneficiaries as co-owners of your assets.
  3. You can change your ownership documents and name your beneficiaries the beneficiaries of your assets.
  4. You can create a trust, and name your trust on your ownership documents as the owner or beneficiary of all your assets.

Each of these options carries either significant costs or risks. It is most wise to consult with an estate planning attorney before choosing any of these options.

What does it cost to prevent probate?

We can effectively prevent and contain all inheritance conflicts for a cost of $4500-$9000. This is of course much better than your beneficiaries paying an average of $15,000 to $20,000 or more for probate litigation, and your fiduciaries taking $15,000 to $20,000 to pay their probate litigation costs. That is $30,000 to $40,000 total in a typical probate litigation fight. Much better to spend a fraction of that to ensure you do your planning right.
