A simple will cannot protect you from the legal processes of probate, guardianship or Medicaid if you need nursing home care. In fact, having a will may actually invite the very things you are trying to avoid, like costs, delays or becoming public record. This is because all wills must be probated or “proven” through a legal process called probate before they are considered “legally valid.”
What’s more, court costs, attorney’s fees and other legal expenses associated with probating a will can consume as much as 3-8% of your entire estate and can take an average of 1 to 2 years to complete, delaying distribution of your assets to heirs. Probate is also often a matter of public record. That means anyone can see what you had, who got what or even how much your heirs received!
A revocable living trust can help to avoid these issues by privatizing your estate and giving you or the person you choose, control in the event of your death or incapacity. Thus, avoiding the costs, delays, and publicity of probate.
