Q
Does a pour over will have to go through probate?

A

Pour over wills are used to fund living trusts.  A pour over will is a will that provides that all of your assets go to your trust upon your death.  It is will that gives all of your items to your trust.  It funds the trust.  One of the purposes of a living trust is to avoid probate.  

But a pour over will must be probated.  Therefore, in a will contest case or a lawsuit over a living trust, the probate Court is still involved. 

If you or anyone you know is involved in a lawsuit over a will or a living trust, you need somoene with probate litigation experience.  Contact the lawyers at The Bartinik Law Firm, P.C., 100 Fort Hill Road, Ste. 2, Groton, Connecticut at 860-445-8521 or toll free at 888-717-4211.
