ASR Law Firm Common Probate Avoidance Measures

Probate avoidance is one of the most common reasons for having a comprehensive estate plan.⁠

Probate avoidance measures include the strategic planning of an individual or married couple to avoid the legal process of the probate courts in the distribution of assets after their death.⁠

Some of the common probate avoidance tools we assist our clientele with here at ASR Law Firm Include:

Revocable Living Trusts

A Revocable Living Trust is a legal entity that holds the legal title to a person’s assets during their lifetime. It allows heirs to avoid probate because the trust and not the decedent own the property.

Joint Tenancy with Rights of Survivorship

This is a form of ownership in which there are two or more individuals who own an equal and undivided share of an asset. Joint tenancy with rights of survivorship ensures that the surviving owners will automatically assume ownership of the deceased owner’s interest.

Enhanced Life Estate or "Ladybird" Deed

The Florida Ladybird Deed is a type of deed in which an owner of real property is given a life estate interest with the remainder interest vesting in specifically named heirs upon their passing. Similarly to joint tenancy interests with rights of survivorship, no further action is needed to effectuate the ownership of the heirs upon the death of the life estate holder.

Payable on Death (POD) or Transfer on Death (TOD) Designations

This option is typically utilized with financial assets such as bank accounts or securities. Essentially, these accounts will name a specific beneficiary to whom the account will be transferred upon the death of the original owner. 

Life Insurance and Retirement Accounts

Utilizing life insurance policies or retirement accounts can be one of the most beneficial assets held by a decedent with the added benefit of being able to designate specific beneficiaries to receive these assets upon their passing. 

Operating Agreements and Company Bylaws

Interests in business entities such as limited liabilities companies may avoid probate in two main ways: either by transferring the owners’ interests to their trusts or by drafting governing documents that outline a succession plan in which co-owners or heirs may inherit ownership interest or corporate stock. 

Small Estate / Summary Procedures

While not an avoidance of the probate process entirely, FL. Stat. 735.201 allows for a simplified probate process for small estates with a total value below $75,000 or if the decedent has been deceased for more than two years. This process is referred to as summary administration and is much faster and less formalized.

Ms. Rasul has been very helpful with my estate planning process. She does a great job at explaining things and putting real life application to different scenarios. No one enjoys discussing the inevitable, but I feel comfortable knowing that my husband and daughter will be well cared for should I pass unexpectedly. I highly recommend her for your estate planning and real estate needs.
