How to avoid probate

When a person in Ohio dies having left only a will, the decedent's family members must usually go through probate court in order to receive their inheritance. Because the process can be expensive and time consuming, many people try to plan their estates so that their beneficiaries can avoid it entirely.

Benefits of funding a special needs trust through life insurance

Parents in Ohio of a special needs child have specific estate planning issues to consider for the long-term well-being of a disabled family member. Using life insurance to fund a trust provides especially useful benefits to a special needs person.

Reasons to update a will

Having a will in place is a good start for estate planning. However, it is good practice to revisit one's will from time to time to make sure that it accounts for changes in tax and privacy laws. In the past fifteen years there have been several changes to both federal and state laws that could have an impact on the distribution and management of estates. One significant change involves phasing out the federal credit for state estate and inheritance taxes. Luckily, residents of Ohio do not need to worry about this change because the state does not impose such taxes.
