Complexities Involved in Probate

At P. Arnsen Blakely, we understand that probate can be a rather complex process. Not only are individuals facing the loss of a loved one, but they are dealing with the court system and difficulties involved. This holds especially true during instances in which:

  • The Decedent Dies Without a Will: When an individual dies without a will they are known as having died "intestate." This means the court is held responsible for appointing an individual to perform the duties of the executor. Probate can then become difficult in which California intestate succession laws must be followed when distributing property to the beneficiaries. A well-qualified probate attorney can get you started in the right direction and see to it that probate is handled correctly.
  • Probate Litigation Occurs:It can be difficult for individuals to handle the affairs of a deceased loved one. When probate occurs, loved ones may become spiteful toward one another or the worst can be brought out. From will contests to breaches of fiduciary duty, our Orange County legal team can assist you. You deserve an effective solution and we are committed to getting you there.
