How to Use Revocable Living Trusts to Avoid Probate

In this article, our Kane County estate planning lawyers explain the use of revocable living trusts to avoid probate. We want to avoid probate because it is a court case that takes at least a year. This means that your loved ones will not have access to your assets until the case is resolved, that a significant amount of assets will be consumed in attorney fees and court costs, and that your loved ones will have to deal with the stress of an ongoing legal matter. By using revocable living trusts as the primary vehicle of your estate plan, we can ensure that probate won't be necessary.  Instead, your estate can be distributed immediately and without an attorney through the use of a Small Estate Affidavit.
