Avoiding Probate

Estate Planning Attorneys in Orange County Help You Prepare for the Future

One of the main goals of estate planning is to avoid the unpleasant experience of probate. When an individual passes away without leaving behind an estate plan, their assets and property must then go through the probate process in order to be distributed. This generally involves litigation and a great deal of stress, as well as other emotions for the surviving family members and loved ones of the deceased.

A common misconception that people have is that simply preparing a will can avoid probate, however a simple will is not a non-probate transfer like a trust. Thus, the will must be brought before the probate judge and be found as a valid document, after which the probate process must occur, which can lead to estate litigation. In order to avoid all of the confusion and difficulty that comes with having only a will, you must be sure to retain an Orange County estate planning attorney with the experience and knowledge to help.
