A free class, Avoiding Probate, is being offered to the public from 6 to 7 p.m., Monday, March 3, at the Georgetown Public Library, 123 West Pine St., Georgetown. The class covers avoiding probate, how to make the transition of property occur seamlessly at the time of death, without opening an estate.
The sponsor, Delaware Money School, provides an experienced and well-qualified instructor, Deirdre O’Shea McCartney, Esq. Having written, spoken and taught on the subject many times, she breaks down what appears to be a complex subject to simple, understandable layman’s terms.
Everyone should have a will prepared with a competent attorney. This class teaches how to prepare an estate in such a manner that the entire probate process can be avoided and the will never comes into play.
The Money School is the signature program of the nonprofit Delaware Financial Literacy Institute. It offers more than 600 free, no-hassle personal finance classes a year, throughout the state, taught by volunteers from the nonprofit and corporate sectors.
