How Can Estate Planning Help Avoid Probate Court?

Taking steps to avoid probate court can be an important step in your overall estate plan. Not only can it help you keep more money in your pocket, but it can also ensure that your family is taken care of after your death.

Ways to avoid probate

Many people want to control their assets after they die. This includes real estate. The largest asset is usually the house. If it is in the deceased’s name, the house will need to go through the probate process. However, there are several ways to avoid probate.

The first way to avoid probate is to jointly own the property. This is a common strategy among couples. When one of the owners dies, the property automatically passes to the surviving partner.

Another way to avoid probate is to use a living trust. A trust is a legal entity, much like a will, but it is managed by a person called a trustee. The trustee will distribute the property according to the terms of the trust.


A payable-on-death (POD) account can also be a good way to avoid probate. When the owner of the account dies, their money will go to a designated beneficiary. These accounts are also often used for tax-free gifts.

Revocable trust

Other ways to avoid probate include using a revocable trust. A revocable trust allows you to put your assets into a trust during your lifetime. This will allow you to take control of the assets during your life, while still allowing the property to pass on to your beneficiaries.
