Strategies for Avoiding Probate

We strive to avoid the eventual expense and delay of probate if possible and appropriate, given your circumstances. We assist you with any issues that might arise in the estate if the decedent received Medical Assistance benefits, and we can guide you through the procedures that have to be followed to make sure that the estate is taken care of appropriately.

One of the strategies that can be followed is the “transfer on death deed,” a new way of transferring real estate to your intended beneficiaries without having to use the probate process. We will advise you about this and other strategies that will help your family to take care of your estate after your death.
