Assistance With Probate Issues in Orange County

Another legal issue that seems to frequently trouble the people in our community is probate, or the process of reviewing and following a will after its creator passes away. The entire process can be understandably confusing or frustrating for people not wholly familiar with all the laws and litigation surrounding it. Our goal will be to either oversee your probate administration or help you avoid it if possible.

Probate is usually necessary when people pass away with a valid will. What if you pass away without naming beneficiaries? If the successor of your estate is unnamed in a will, probate will still be required to determine who will inherit your estate. In many cases, the order of priority in California will be children, spouse, parents, and siblings, and this may not line up with how the decedent originally intended.
