Q: WHAT ABOUT WILL DISPUTES?
Probate can be a lengthy, costly legal process especially if disgruntled parties challenge the validity or fairness of the Will through litigation claiming incapacity of the testator, duress or undue influence. To avoid probate, many opt to set up a living revocable trust, because it passes the property and wealth onto the beneficiaries quickly and efficiently.
Since your trust holds title to your property on behalf of your beneficiaries, when you die, it automatically transfers that property over to them often without any delay or legal challenge. But compared to simple wills, living revocable trusts are more expensive and complicated to set up and maintain while you are alive.
