Orange County Probate Lawyer & Estate Planning
How can Estate Planning and Probate help me?: The Orange County Estate Planning Attorney explains as follows, through an Estate plan you can put your affairs in order while living by determining how you want your estate handled upon your death. What is an estate? An estate is comprised of personal possessions and real property such as your home, your autos, your bank accounts. You determine to whom your things will go. This can be done through a living trust or by creating a will. If you have minor children you will need to designate whom you would like to name as Guardian for your minor children should something happen to you while your children are still minors. You will be able to make arrangements for family members with special needs, reduce tax liability, and provide for the transfer of any business you may own.
A revocable living trust avoids probate and can limit court involvement. A living trust costs more at the onset while a Will can be draft for a lot less but will need to go through probate upon your death. There are property and assets that may not need to go through probate this is property where you have name a beneficiary such a life insurance policy, IRA or 401(k). Having a plan will give you peace of mind.
These matters are handled in probate court. Many issues over lap estate planning such as elder issue involving conservatorships and elder long term care such as assistance with personal care, meals, and medical needs.
