The COVID-19 pandemic has created many estate planning issues, the first and foremost of which is, do you have an estate plan? If you do not have an estate plan, state law will determine who receives your property, which may not necessarily be the individuals to whom you wish it to go. Also, without an estate plan and a revocable living trust, your estate may be subject to probate which will cause your heirs to incur additional legal fees and expend time which could have otherwise been avoided. Probate is the legal process which involves the institution of a probate proceeding in court in order to cause the property of a deceased person to be transferred to the person’s heirs. This can be avoided with a proper estate plan and a revocable living trust.
