Probate and Avoiding Probate

Probate is a court supervised process in which a judge decides if your Will is valid, and in general how your estate should be administered, how your debts should be paid and how your property should be distributed. Probate is a lengthy process which often lasts more than a year, but can easily be avoided through the use of paid-on-death accounts, gifts, property tiled jointly with the right of survivorship, and the often talked about revocable living trust.
