It’s even worse when families fight over the estate. Plus, estates with no wills can be extra complicated and sometimes messier. Not every family has a Supreme Court Justice willing to step in and help.
The good news is that with proper estate planning — including a revocable living trust — probate court can be avoided entirely. Just as Lincoln didn’t plan to pass away that fateful night in April, 1865, neither do most people. So encourage your clients to do a favor for their loved ones this holiday season and put their estates in order, with the help of a good estate planning attorney.
