Wills, Trusts and Probate

Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging, during a person's life, for the management and disposal of that person's estate during the person's life and after death, while minimizing gift, estate, generation skipping transfer, and income tax. Wills and trusts are an integral part of proper planning. Probate is the legal process by which a court of law puts the person’s planning into action after death.
