WHAT IS AN EXAMPLE OF NEEDING A PROBATEWITH ESTATE PLANNING?
I am working on a probate case right now as I type this blog where the husband died before his wife with separate assets and no children. Sadly, the wife believed she was entitled to the assets because the trust stated she was the beneficiary. However, the husband died with all of his assets in his name alone with no beneficiaries and an empty, unfunded trust. An unfunded trust, or a trust with nothing in it, creates a separate mess of problems. In the case in my example, a probate needs to be opened then the court monitors all assets being transferred and distributed through the trust.
