Wills & Trusts
If you are like most people, the reason you are visiting our website is because you have decided it was time to put together your will, or maybe a trust. Perhaps you are not sure what you need. We often find that most people interchange the term “will” and “trust.” Our goal is to help you understand the important differences between the two documents. It could save your family a lot of time and money.
One of the most important differences that will surprise most people is that a will does NOT avoid probate. Even if you carefully document your wishes in a will, your estate will still end up in probate after your death. A will does not avoid probate, in fact, in most cases it guarantees it.
