"I thought a Will avoided probate"

I was asked to look over a Last Will and Testament that was recently drafted by an attorney in town. I asked her what she wanted her estate plan to accomplish.  Among other things, she wanted to avoid probate when she died. She was shocked when I explained that probate would be necessary with a Will.

I don't know the cause of her misunderstanding--maybe from her prior attorney or from bad information on the web. Whatever the source, she thought she had a good plan in place. 

If you have a plan that you're uncertain about, or questions about how it should work, I'm happy to look it over. Better to fix it now, than to leave your family with a mess.
