Wills and Probate

Discussing end-of-life issues is rarely a pleasant experience, but ensuring you have an effective Will or Trust will make things much easier for your family at the time of your passing. A Will can ensure that your wishes are carried out according to your desires, but probate will still be necessary. A living trust will allow your family to entirely avoid probate, and save them a significant sum on lawyers and court fees. Donald J.
