Why Avoid Probate?

Probate is essentially a tax on the American public.  At least the taxes imposed by our government go to good things like building roads, educating our youth, and providing a military.  However, the probate "tax" goes to attorneys and financial institutions that have no interest in you.  This is why avoiding probate is so important.  You worked hard to provide for yourself and your family.  Without proper planning, your hard-earned money will go to attorneys and courts.  With a little bit of effort on your part, you can save tremendous effort and cost down the road.  It's like anything in life, simple steps now can save time and effort in the future. 

Here are just a few of the reasons to Avoid Probate:

  1. Cost
  2. Time
  3. Publicity
  4. Uncertain outcomes
