What Is Estate Planning?

Estate planning is the process of deciding how you want your assets to be managed, preserved, and distributed after you pass away. It also involves making decisions about what medical care you want to receive if you are ever incapacitated and how you want your final arrangements to be handled.

Without a legally sound and comprehensive estate plan in place, your assets will be distributed according to the laws of intestate succession in California. This means that your assets may not be passed down to the people you would have chosen. Estate planning can help you avoid this and many other issues, such as probate and estate taxes.

What Is the Probate Process?

The probate process is the legal process through which a deceased person's estate is settled and their assets are distributed to heirs or beneficiaries.

The probate process generally involves the following steps:

  • Validating the decedent's will (if there is one)
  • Inventorying the decedent's assets
  • Paying the decedent's outstanding debts and taxes
  • Notifying creditors and other interested parties
  • Resolving any disputes (e.g. will contests, beneficiary disputes, etc.)
  • Distributing the decedent's assets to heirs/beneficiaries
