If you are creating an estate plan and wish to avoid probate in the future, we can help. Some reasons people choose to avoid probate include:


A Need for Privacy

Probate cases are filed in court and are in the public record.


Family Disagreements

Wills and estates go to probate court to allow interested persons the opportunity to represent their claim on the estate by challenging or contesting a will.

Saving Money

Probating an estate requires the help of a competent probate lawyer to schedule court appearances and complete extensive paperwork. The legal fees can mount up quickly.


How Can Families Prevent the Need for Probate?

Creating a smart estate plan is the best way to avoid probate. Rose Elder Law and our experienced team of attorneys can work with you and your loved ones to draft the proper legal documents and carefully time asset transfers in Oregon.


Revocable Living Trust

The revocable living trust dictates the management or distribution of property. There is nothing to file, and it does not need to be submitted to the probate court.


Joint Title

Placing your assets into joint ownership with your future beneficiaries transfers the ownership interest automatically to the joint owner.


Payable-On-Death and Transfer-On-Death

Payment on death accounts (POD) have a designation that names a person to receive assets in the account when the original account owner dies. Transfer on death (TOD) is a designation on the title or deed to a real estate piece or a car that will automatically change ownership once the owner dies.
