Estate Planning to Avoid Probate in Diamond Bar, CA
With careful estate planning, you can help your loved ones avoid probate. In addition to drafting a clear, enforceable will, you can create trusts and set up “transfer-on-death” registrations for your important assets and documents.
If there are no questions about your final wishes, the court will not have to decide what happens to your assets during probate. Instead, your loved ones will handle your final tax obligations and inherit as you intended.
Going Through Probate in Diamond Bar, CA
Even if you plan your estate perfectly, your estate will need to go through probate if you own real estate and personal property worth more than $150,000. Your loved ones may also choose probate if they contest your will – or have another dispute they need the probate court to solve.
In probate, the court may consider your home(s), vehicle(s), investments, art, and bank accounts. While you can provide specific instructions for these assets, the court will still need to review your estate before distributing your property according to your wishes.
Once again, if you plan carefully (see above), probate should be nothing more than a formality.
Nevertheless, The Law Office of Mitchell A. Port can assist your loved ones with the probate process after you’re gone. The firm offers pre-mortem and post-mortem assistance with estate planning and probate in Diamond Bar.
