Riverside Probate Attorney

Knowledgeable Legal Counsel from an Estate Planning Lawyer in Riverside

If you are contemplating creating an estate plan, it may be helpful to know that everything you own amounts to an estate. Your estate includes cash in checking or savings accounts, investments, your home, automobiles, jewelry, artwork, furniture, land that you own, life insurance policies and even your prized stamp or coin collection. Unless you don't mind if your assets are distributed according to California's intestate succession (dying without a will) laws, then it's a good idea to start planning today while you can still have control over who gets what and when.

While an estate plan allows you to determine how your assets are distributed, it does so much more than that. An estate plan allows you to name a guardian for minor children, it allows you to appoint an executor for your estate, it allows you to appoint someone to make health care and financial decisions for you if you are unable to do so for yourself, and it can protect valuable assets while reducing the tax consequences upon your estate.

If protecting your hard-earned assets is important to you and making sure that your loved ones are well-taken care of, we urge you to contact Dennis M. Sandoval, a PLC today to find out how we can make your dreams a reality. You cannot underestimate the power of a good estate plan and we can guarantee that your loved ones will be eternally thankful that you planned ahead of time.

How Our Legal Team Can Help You Get Through Probate

The probate process can be confusing, and it can be expensive for your beneficiaries due to various taxes and fees. This is the process in which your will shall be carried out and your assets distributed according to the provisions of your will. If you are to die without a will, then your estate will be distributed according to California's intestacy laws, which can result in highly undesirable results. It is also important to recognize that the validity of your will can be challenged during the probate process and, if successful, your assets could be distributed in a highly undesirable manner.

If you wish to avoid the probate process, then there are steps you can take. Every will must go through probate in California, and wills designate the distribution of assets that are currently in the name of the decedent. Therefore, in order to avoid probate, you must transfer your property out of your name, while remaining in control of your assets until you pass. This can all be accomplished through a living trust where you are the named trustee. If you wish to understand more about this option, then you should seek the assistance of a representative from our firm.
