Estate planning is the proactive and systematic process of arranging one's affairs to ensure a smooth and efficient management and distribution of assets after death or incapacitation. It involves creating legally binding documents like wills, trusts, and power of attorney to designate beneficiaries, outline the distribution of properties, and appoint trusted individuals to make financial or medical decisions on behalf of the person. A well-thought-out estate plan can provide peace of mind, protect the interests of loved ones, minimize potential disputes, and potentially reduce estate taxes.
Probate is the legal process of administering a deceased person's estate and distributing assets to beneficiaries or heirs. During probate, a court oversees the settling of debts and taxes and the proper transfer of property to the rightful recipients. While probate serves an important purpose in providing a structured and fair distribution of assets, it can also be a time-consuming and expensive process, prompting some individuals to explore estate planning strategies that avoid probate altogether.
