Naperville will and trust attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains how trusts prevent the probate process when you pass.
In this article, our Naperville trust attorneys discuss using a trust to ensure that your estate avoids probate when you pass. Probate can be avoided by executing a revocable living trust and transferring your real estate and savings accounts into it during your lifetime. Other steps to avoid probate include:
In Illinois, if you own $100,000 of non-real estate assets and real estate outside of a trust, probate is mandatory. Probate court can end up costing you 5% to 10% of the estate in attorneys fees and court costs. Not only is it costly, but it is time-consuming. Probate cases can take up to a year or more to complete before distributing your inheritance.
Using a revocable living trust will allow easy passage of assets to your loved ones when you pass. This document is made to avoid the stressful, lengthy, and costly process of probate.
Naperville trust lawyer Kevin O'Flaherty explains how revocable living trusts can be used to avoid probate when you pass.
