  • Married QTIP Trusts
  • Special Needs Trusts for Disabled Beneficiaries

The proper combination of these tools will document your wishes, protect your estate from over-taxation and government interference, and provide for your loved ones.

PROBATE
Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, accomplished by resolving all claims and distributing the property of the deceased under a valid will. A probate interprets the instructions of the deceased, decides the executor of the estate, and determines rights and obligations heirs and other parties who may have claims against the estate.

Avoiding probate will normally save substantial costs (the probate courts, in some states, charge a fee based on a percentage net worth of the deceased), time, and maintain privacy (the probate records are available to the public, while distribution through a trust is private).

Mortensen & Reinheimer, PC works with our clients to avoid probate, as well as representing clients during court probate proceedings and with any related litigation.
