Avoid Probate Through Estate Planning
Our Sacramento probate attorney can help you plan for success.
When a person dies without leaving behind a will in the state of California,
their belongings and assets will go through probate proceedings to determine
how their estate will be distributed. A probate court will designate a
family member as an executor to divide the deceased person's assets,
such as real estate, bank accounts and cars. At this time, creditors may
step forward to collect any unpaid debts.
The probate process can be lengthy and complicated, which is why so many
individuals turn to estate planning as a precaution. Whether you wish
to avoid probate or are currently going through probate proceedings, a
Placer County estate planning lawyer from our firm can provide you with
the solid legal counsel you need.
