Protect Your Estate From The Complicated Probate Process
When a person who did not have a thorough estate plan passes on, their assets and finances become subject to an extensive probate process. This process distributes the assets, settles debts and ensures beneficiaries. Without an estate plan, instead of these assets going to an intended beneficiary, they may go to the wrong person.
I am Abagail M. Nouska, and I want to help you avoid probate and create an estate plan you depend on. At my Cloquet office of Abagail M. Nouska, Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., I use my 15 years of estate planning and probate experience to help my clients create a plan that protects their best interests for their future while avoiding an unnecessary probate process.
How You Can Avoid Probate
While each of my clients has unique needs in their estate plan, some probate tips work for most estate plans. As I help my clients with these cases, I often recommend some tips, such as:
- Appointing beneficiaries to your financial accounts. Appointing these people know while you are in good health will minimize any confusion about your wishes in the future.
- Holding assets like bank accounts and real estate jointly. If you already have your spouse or intended beneficiary on a bank account or title before your passing, the transfer of ownership process will be much simpler.
It can be hard to know if you are creating an estate plan you can count on, which is why I want to be the lawyer who makes the process as simple and quick as possible for you.
