It is important to understand that just because an asset does not go through probate does not mean that it avoids estate tax. Assets passed via a trust or will are included in the taxable estate. The federal estate tax currently applies only to estates worth more than $5.43 million. State estate taxes vary greatly with some states applying no tax and others applying the tax to estates of moderate amounts.
It is commonly recommended that if you create a living trust you should also have what is called a pour-over will. In case any property is mistakenly left out proof the trust, the pour-over will transfer those leftover assets to the trust.
Our Living Trust includes:
Power of Attorney for Financial
Power of Attorney for Health care
If you own real property we recommend you transfer the ownership to your trust in order to avoid Probate.

You and your spouse agree on how to handle property, money, and parenting issues. In some cases, this means neither party will need to file a response to the court filing.
Your spouse does not disagree with you on your requests and is not likely to file forms in court saying so. In a situation where the spouse does not file a response, the Petitioner will receive a “default” judgment.
With an uncontested case, you may not need to have the court hear your case. Instead, the case can be handled by mail or by brief contact with the judge or the judge’s clerk.
