What Is The Difference Between A Will And A Trust?

Some people mistakenly believe that a trust is only for the wealthy. That is not true. Simply put, wills go through probate and trusts do not. What is probate? Probate is the court process that determines what will happen to your assets after your death. It can be lengthy and costly and reduce the value of your estate. The fees involved can be avoided by making some decisions now.
