I live (rent) in Alabama and own property in North Carolina. In which state are laws regarding wills more favorable. My will is made and executed in Alabama. However, because of the property that I own, the will needs to be probated in North Carolina.
If you own a probate asset such as a house titled in your name it will need to be probated in that state regardless of where the will was made or executed. An out of state will can be probated in North Carolina but will have no added benefits around NC estate taxes.
A living trust would help avoid probate in multiple states.
