How To Use Revocable Living Trusts To Avoid Costly Probate Proceedings

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: 

  1. Deed any real estate owned by the client into the trust
  2. Transfer any savings accounts that are not qualified retirement
    accounts into the trust
  3. Ensure that proper beneficiaries and successor beneficiaries are
    named on qualified retirement accounts and life insurance policies

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.
