If you don’t do any estate planning, then we have to file a probate case for you in court. Probate means to prove and what we have to prove is that whomever is petitioning the court to be the personal representative of your estate is qualified to do so. That person they will get permission to sign their name as if they were you.

That person, once appointed, can then administer your estate. If someone doesn’t agree with what you are doing, that person can sue you – then you’re looking at additional court costs and attorneys fees. You probably have heard that the only ones who win in a lawsuit are the lawyers and there is some truth to that.

I’ve had clients where we have won their case after a long trial and my clients were still upset because they had to go through the who mess. Trust me – you don’t want to spend years in court – you want to move on with your life. You can’t move on if you’re being sued about an estate.

But if you do your estate planning and you get it done, then you never have to worry because the written documents will prevail and your personal representative will be the person you want appointed, not just whomever the state chooses – and the chance of lawsuits decreases because you’ve done your planning and it says exactly what will happen.
