Do Living Trusts Go Through Probate?

View More FAQ Videos


Generally, no. One of the benefits of having a living trust is to avoid probate. However, there's always those times when an asset is not retitled in the name of the trust, or the individual opens in a bank account and fails to open it in the name of the trust. In that situation, a pour-over will is like a safety net. It will pick that asset up, and through the probate process, pour it into the trust so it flows through the instructions of that trust.
