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.
Mortensen & Reinheimer, PC serves to help individuals plan their estate
so as to prevent their loved ones from having to endure the necessity
of probate. 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. Each lawyer with Mortensen & Reinheimer, PC
has extensive skill in estate planning and can help you draft the best possible
living trust so that probate can be avoided.
