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.
