While revocable trusts can accomplish a wide range of goals, the one that most people typically consider most important is that it allows for the avoidance of probate. It is true that, in many situations, probate is a fairly simple process. However, even in the best-case scenario, there is an investment of time and money required.

The unfortunate reality is that, in some cases, probate can turn into a complex process. When someone comes forward with a will contest, the probate process can quickly turn into a serious dispute. Such a dispute can be costly. It can be time-consuming. It can be stressful for all involved. The creation of a revocable trust can help to avoid such stress.
