Avoid Probate with a Torrance Estate Planning Attorney
Estate planning can also help you avoid the probate process. The probate
process can be costly, time consuming and difficult to navigate. That
is why it is so vital to obtain an attorney who is intimately familiar
with California probate laws and who understands how the court system works.
If you have recently lost a loved one, then you can understand the overwhelming
responsibilities that then fall onto the remaining family members and
relatives. Probate deals with the outstanding estate debts and the division
of property and inheritance. Distributing the assets to heirs and beneficiaries
must be done according to the will of the deceased or the intestate laws
of California, which is why you could greatly benefit from the experienced
legal counsel of a probate lawyer.
