It is common to hear people talk about their desire to find ways to avoid probate. Many will give gifts to their children, set up trusts and engage in creative business deals. In various ways, they attempt to protect their assets and the beneficiaries of their estates from the processes of probate. Minimizing taxes is one concern; avoiding complications is another goal for many. They may be unaware of the benefits of probate for many purposes.
There may be good reasons to try to avoid probate. However, it is important to remember that not all assets in an estate will necessarily end up where intended. There may be income tax refunds, paid judgments and other assets that come to the estate near the end of life and don't fall into trusts or other protected repositories of wealth. For these reasons, a pour-over will can be an important document — and probate can be not only necessary but also very helpful in such cases.
