What About Property Outside of Idaho?

What About Property Outside of Idaho?

If you own property in more than one state, a Family Trust becomes an even more important part of your estate plan.

Without a Family Trust or Living Trust, the heirs of a person who owned property in multiple states must not only go through probate here in Idaho, they must then also do a simplified probate process in each of those other states.  The cost of all of those legal proceedings can cause the costs and delays to those loved ones to grow substantially.

But with a Family Trust or Living Trust, not only is probate in Idaho avoided, the proceedings in the other states are avoided, as well.

So, for those owning property in multiple states, the benefit of a Family Trust or Living Trust is even greater.

Wit & Wisdom

The idea of evil is something on which the health of society depends. We have an obligation to name evil and oppose it in ourselves as well as in others.

- Andrew Delbanco


The minute we walked into your office we felt comfortable. Your service in putting our family trust together was excellent. Your clarification on questions we had was extremely helpful and at no time did we feel rushed to go through the process . . . We have already recommended your services to other and will continue to do so with no hesitation. " (Shawn & Elaine J. -- Meridian, Idaho)
