We are told many times by clients that the reason they want us to prepare a Last Will & Testament for them is so that they can “avoid probate".

If your estate planning consists solely of having a Last Will & Testament, you have not done everything you can to avoid probate.

There is never a 100% guarantee that you can avoid probate, however, there are many things you can do, with the assistance of your attorney, to help accomplish this goal such as making sure your real estate is titled properly or having a living trust prepared.

If you own real estate, another example to avoid probate would be to have prepared and filed an affidavit called a “Transfer on Death Designation Affidavit”. This affidavit would allow your designated beneficiaries to receive the title for your real estate without probate by filing a subsequent affidavit upon your death.

If you should have any questions on ways you can avoid probate, please call me. I would be glad to help you with this important issue.

Who would have thought that the first crime “allegedly” caused in outer space would be related to a divorce action?

You may have seen the recent news story about an astronaut “allegedly” hacking into her spouse’s bank account online while in outer space. The astronaut and her spouse are currently involved in a divorce action. *

Whether your spouse is an astronaut or not, if you are having marital troubles and are considering a divorce or a dissolution of marriage, please contact me, Michael S. Bailey, Attorney, for a consultation at 631-0022.

The first meeting will allow me an opportunity to learn about your marital issues and give you advice regarding the law, the procedure, and what to expect in a divorce or dissolution of marriage.

The same laws will apply whether the acts occur here on earth or in outer space!
