Do I Have to Go Through Probate in California? 

Because probate laws can vary from state to state, it’s essential to understand how the probate process works under California law. 

Generally speaking, when you own a home (even if there is a mortgage), probate is required in the state of California.  However, this does not mean probate is unavoidable. It’s important to seek the trusted counsel of an attorney to fully understand your options, and determine the best route to take based on your unique circumstances. 

Here are two basic reasons you will likely need to go through probate in California:

  • You own real estate
  • A total asset value greater than $184,500

Although it is possible to avoid probate in California, there are case-specific instances in which the state deems probate is necessary. Whether or not you have a valid will or don’t have one, probate may be required.  The intricate nature of probate law can be tricky to navigate on your own. Having a trusted Alhambra probate lawyer on your side can make a world of difference when it comes to this area of the law. 

Our firm is committed to meeting and exceeding the expectations of our clients. When it comes to you and your family, you should never have to settle for anything less. Contact us to schedule your free phone consultation today.
