Want to save your family money and hassle? Read this book!


Probate court proceedings after a death can drag out and cost tens of thousands of dollars in attorney and court fees--money that would otherwise have gone directly to your loved ones.


This topselling guide shows you the most effective ways to skip the probate process:


  • name payable-on-death beneficiaries for financial accounts
  • own property jointly
  • leave real estate with transfer-on-death deeds
  • use a living trust
  • name the right beneficiaries for IRAs, 401(k)s, and other retirement plans, and
  • use probate shortcuts for small estates.


Completely updated, this edition includes the latest state laws on probate avoidance methods, and covers all the estate-related impacts of the recent changes to federal rules on retirement distributions.
