Flint Probate Attorney

Helping Clients in Genesee County with the Probate Process

Facing probate after the death of a loved one can be a long and complicated process. Distributing wealth, assets and property is only a small part of it. You also may have to deal with any debts or other unsettled legal issues.

Because of all the complexities that go along with probate, it is always a good idea to get an experienced estate planning and probate lawyer to help you navigate the legal process. In addition, if you are interested in arranging a trust that can help your loved ones avoid probate altogether, our team can make sure that everything is in order.

How to Avoid Probate in Flint, MI

Many people want to know how they can avoid the probate process entirely. There are certain assets that automatically bypass probate, including:

  • Life Insurance
  • Retirement Accounts
  • Pensions
  • Wages or salary due to the deceased person
  • Bank accounts with a Payable-on-Death, or POD, designation
  • Stocks and bonds registered in a Transfer-on-Death, or TOD, form

Additionally, assets owned jointly with a spouse will generally not require probate.

For any assets that don't automatically avoid probate, you have the option to set up a living trust. These assets will pass to your named beneficiaries without needing to involve probate court.


No one should have to deal with probate matters alone. Reach out to our probate lawyers in Flint, MI at (810) 292-3115.
