Avoiding Probate free financial class set Sept. 9

September 4, 2019

Avoiding Probate, a free financial class, will be offered to the public from 5 to 6 p.m., Monday, Sept. 9, at Georgetown Public Library.

The class covers avoiding probate, how to make the transition of property occur seamlessly at the time of death without opening an estate. Delaware Money School provides experienced and well-qualified instructor Deirdre O’Shea McCartney, Esq. Having taught on the subject for many years, she breaks down complex subjects to simple, understandable terms. This class focuses only on steps the lay person can take so assets transfer at death to the intended beneficiaries by operation of law, immediately and automatically.

Anyone who has served as a personal representative or executor of an estate knows firsthand how complex, expensive and time-consuming the probate process can be. 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. To register, go to For more information, email or call 302-855-0551.
