Proper estate planning helps eliminate uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximize the estate value by reducing taxes and expenses.

Estate planning* involves the will, trusts, beneficiary designations, powers of appointment, property ownership (joint tenancy with rights of survivorship, tenancy in common, tenancy by the entirety), gifts, and powers of attorney.
