Advertisements on how to avoid probate are almost unavoidable and give the impression that you can arrange for your estate to flow seamlessly to your beneficiaries immediately after your death. In spite of the impression given by this misinformation, probate is not entirely evil and usually cannot be completely avoided, but you can employ methods to keep some of your estate from being probated by careful and timely use of deed transfers and revocable trusts.
