Probate can be a daunting and delicate necessity for many when considering assets outside of a trust. It is important that you are provided informative answers on the nuances of probate litigation, yet retain confidence in our experience with handling the complex and dynamic nature of probate law in Tustin and throughout Orange County.
Probate, one of the oldest traditions in American law, is mandatory when an individual passes away without a will and in many cases even when a will exists. The process involves sorting out the estate of the deceased, from notifying creditors to filing tax returns, and can take longer than the year average to complete if multiple beneficiaries are involved. Where possible, a living trust is advised as an easier alternative.
