A good estate planning lawyer will advise and assist you in the preparation of a will, which has to be the first step in any planning process. A will does not avoid probate but is a clear indication of your wishes and desires, that courts will take into account. Jointly owned property or other annuities will transfer automatically to designated beneficiaries, and need not be part of the will. Probate after death can be avoided if your estate planning lawyer suggests you set up a living trust into which your assets, those which you designate, are transferred while you are living. A living trust continues even after you die, and the assets continue to remain in it. The control of the trust is with trustees you will have designated.  Contact to learn more about specific estate planning strategies.
