Packages Suited to Your Needs
Each of our clients is different. Some have spent their lifetimes amassing wealth and other property, making their cases more complex. Others only need basic protections put in place to ensure their property is passed on in accordance to their wishes. AvoidProbate offers different service packages to get you exactly what you need with no risk of surprise fees.
AvoidProbate Basic is designed for clients whose primary asset is their house, and they want it to be protected from probate. This package includes a revocable living trust, powers of attorney, and a quit claim deed*. The Basic option is ideal for someone who just bought a house and is looking to save some money. Clients who select this option will initially meet an attorney on the phone and then execute the documents on their own.
AvoidProbate Complete is our most popular package, and it includes all of the essential estate planning documents you need, such as a will, a revocable living trust, powers of attorney, and a quit claim deed*. This package is perfect for anyone with a young child who needs a will in order to name a guardian. Clients who select this option will initially meet with an attorney over the phone, then will execute the documents in the office with an attorney. The attorney will also advise the client on how to fund the estate plan.
AvoidProbate Advanced is designed for clients that have more complex estate planning needs, such as children outside a marriage, estate tax issues, or unique beneficiaries. The package includes one or more living trusts, one or two wills, powers of attorney for health care and property, and a quit claim deed. These clients will go through a comprehensive initial consultation with an attorney, then meet with an attorney to execute the documents. The attorney will then spend as much time as needed working with the client on funding the estate plan.
