WHAT WE ACKNOWLEDGE
That there are a lot of individuals and organizations who scare people into thinking that probate is horrible and should be avoided at all costs. This causes people to spend a significant amount of time and money forming complicated trusts and transferring assets to those trusts in an effort to avoid the probate process. The probate process is a means of making sure that your assets pass as required in your Will. We have seen over the years that, in an effort to avoid probate, many individuals and families spend more money on the probate avoidance process than they would if they actually went through the probate process.
