Las Vegas residents have likely heard by now that the Oscar-winning comedian and actor Robin Williams died of an apparent suicide earlier this month. Williams, in his early 60s, was married with three children who range in age from 22 to 31.

Even a will exposes one's heirs to the probate process. Williams, however, set up trusts for his children several years ago, along with some interesting conditions regarding how his children would receive the money.
