What happens after you create a will? Many people mistakenly believe that if they create a will, they avoid probate – this is entirely false. After you pass, the probate court supervises your home, retirement, and what you’ve spent a lifetime trying to preserve for your children and/or desired beneficiaries. If you haven’t created a will, the court will appoint a representative (executor) for you! Navigating through the complex web of forms and requirements of probate is tedious and confusing. Baron Law LLC is your Ohio law firm that can help you navigate through the probate court system. Moreover, we can help you avoid the probate court through probate avoidance structures.
Estate administration is very important so that your family isn’t stuck with unwanted court costs and time. During an initial consultation with Baron Law, and in preparation for creating a will or trust, our team will administer a list of assets so that each beneficiary is considered. Moreover, we will explore additional estate planning and probate avoidance options through our Trust Questionnaire to determine if a trust or other probate avoidance option is available. This helps the probate court determine which assets must be listed on the inventory which assets will pass directly to a surviving joint owner or beneficiary. Don’t have a will? Not to worry – we ask the same questions and create an inventory from information gathered from family members.
