Why You Need an Estate Planning Attorney in California
People often think that estate planning is for the wealthy, but this is far from the truth. Even if all you have is a home and money in the bank, it would be wise to assign beneficiaries to make the aftermath of your passing less chaotic for your loved ones.
Below are some of the reasons why you need an estate planning attorney:
- Avoid the probate process: When someone passes, the decedent’s estate will go through the probate process, allowing it to be transferred to any surviving heirs. Probate can be long, expensive, and is a very public process. You can spare your beneficiaries having to go through the probate process by having an estate plan in place.
- Protect you and your loved ones: An estate plan can include many features that protect you and your loved ones, such as a trust, power of attorney, medical directive, and more. We will work with you to help you decide what to include in your estate plan.
- Have a say in who will receive your assets: With an estate plan in place, you can rest assured your wishes will be respected after your death. Additionally, if you would like to disinherit someone who might otherwise receive some of your assets or property, you can address this in your estate plan as well.
Although an attorney is not required to create an estate plan, this is not a task you should handle on your own. Poor estate planning can result in greater costs, a lengthy probate process, and unnecessary stress.
