There are many reasons why everyone should consider estate planning. Having a good estate plan in place will make sure your assets are managed and disposed of in the manner that you prefer when you die or become incapacitated. It protects any inheritances that you pass on to your heirs from any creditors to whom they owe money.
Probate of an estate is the process by which the estate is legally distributed to designated heirs, and legal title of property is transferred from an estate to heirs and beneficiaries according to probate laws. During the probate process, the probate court can rule on the validity of a will, appoint an administrator, identify heirs, and distribute property.
You do need to have a plan in place because if you die without a will or living trust, the job of managing and disposing of your assets, even the custody of your children, passes into the hands of the courts. Many individuals overlook this important aspect in their lives. Here at J. Armstrong Law, LLC we firmly believe that you should consult an attorney to guide you through the estate planning and probate processes.
