Avoiding Probate in Rock Island

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

Rock Island Probate Attorney
Rock Island Probate Lawyers

In this article, our Rock Island probate lawyers discuss how revocable living trusts are a potential legal resource for estate plans in Rock Island to avoid probate. Probate is bad because:

  1. Your loved ones cannot access to your assets until the probate case is completed;
  2. An estate will be significantly reduced by attorney fees and court costs.
  3. The administration of your estate will be significantly more difficult for your executor.

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