Although the thought might be uncomfortable, the reality is that no one can escape death, so it is best to be prepared. Most people in Tennessee would probably agree that estate planning is an important part of being prepared, but are people following through with this notion? According to one study, not really.
The aftermath of a loved one's death involves more than just grieving that loss. Tennessee families are generally still tasked with handling a person's estate, which can be an overwhelming prospect, particularly when probate is involved. However, with careful planning, some individuals may choose to construct their estate plan in such a manner that it successfully circumvents probate altogether.
