Avoiding Probate in Rock Island County

In this video, Rock Island County probate attorney Kevin O'Flaherty discuss the methods that can be used to avoid probate in Rock Island County.

Rock Island County Probate Attorney
Rock Island County Probate Lawyers

In this article, our Rock Island County probate lawyers discuss estate planning methods that can be used to eliminate or reduce the risk of an estate entering probate after the executors passing. Probate is bad for three reasons:

  1. Your loved ones cannot access to your assets for nearly a year until the probate case is completed;
  2. An estate will be significantly reduced by attorney fees and court costs. Your estate will typically spend 5% to 10% of the value of the estate on attorney fees alone; and 
  3. The administration of your estate will be significantly more difficult for your executor. He or she will spend a lot of time dealing with an attorney, preparing reports, and gathering information.

Probate can be avoided by utilizing a revocable living trust and transferring your real estate and savings accounts into it during your lifetime.

A Rock Island County revocable living trust can own property and provides the creator complete control over the property owned by the trust during his or her lifetime, and specifies how the trust assets will be disbursed after the creator’s death.
