Probate administration is governed by a Will if the deceased person had one. Because probate administration is expensive and for other reasons, many people wish to avoid probate administration. The only way to avoid the expense of probate is to avoid probate administration after death. These include trusts, joint with right of survivorship ownership, payable on death and transfer on death beneficiary designations, contractual beneficiary designations, and assets that pass by statute.
