Help with Estate Planning Matters in California
The process of transferring the property of a decedent can be complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. Everyone has an estate, even if they only have a few assets, and the law requires any property to be transferred according to state law. Estate planning is a legal service needed by anyone with a property they plan to pass down to their next generation of relatives. At The Law Office of Mitchell A. Port, we can help you and your family prepare for these future inevitabilities with the compassion and expertise you’d expect from an attorney with over four decades of experience.

The Importance of Creating a Will
Creating a will doesn’t have to be a stressful or depressing process. At The Law Office of Mitchell A. Port, we help families and friends plan for the future by putting their affairs in order. When you pass away without a will or estate plan, your assets and property will be transferred according to state intestate succession laws. A will can ensure the people you want to inherit your property are specified. If you have valuables or anything you’d like to pass to your heirs, it’s imperative you work with an attorney who understands how the estate planning process works and can ensure we create the right of documents to meet your legal needs. If you care about who gets your assets, leaving the transfer of your assets in the hands of the state could be a serious error. Intestate succession laws may not align with your wishes, and your property could end up going to the wrong people, or people you care for could be left out of your estate completely.
Probate in Compton, CA
Whenever you hear about probate, people are trying to avoid it. The reality is probate court serves an important purpose in the legal transfer of property after death. Once you decide to create an estate plan, you will need to name an executor for your estate. The executor will ensure your property is distributed according to your will. Serving as the executor of an estate is a big responsibility, so it’s important to choose a person who is up to the task. When an estate doesn’t have an executor or a trustee of a trust, it cannot move forward without going into probate. In probate court, the system will find someone to serve as the estate executor and trustee of your trust. This person will complete the process of ensuring assets from the estate go to the heirs the decedent intended.
