Understanding the Importance of Estate Planning
One of the main purposes of estate planning is to
avoid probate. When a person passes on without leaving a clear estate plan – or
any estate plan at all, the issue must be resolved through the difficult,
stressful, and often emotional legal process known as probate. A discovery
process will need to be undertaken to uncover the entirety of the late
individual's property and assets, after which their estate will be
divided and distributed to all relatives, heirs, and beneficiaries under
the supervision of the court.
Probate can be extremely problematic, often because arguments are sparked
over who should receive what. All it takes to avoid these complications
is excellent estate planning, an estate plan that explicitly states who
receives every part of the estate. To do this, you will need a qualified
estate planning lawyer who is fluent in California’s legal system
for both probate and estate planning. At Mortensen & Reinheimer, PC,
we have the experience and dedication to craft a personalized, creative
plan with you.
