Probate and Living Trust

Posted on 11/05/14 No Comments

Two recent customer experiences caused me to write this post.

Experience 1: Customer contacted me at my Arroyo Grande, CA office and stated his brother has just passed away. It is a simple probate matter. There are two surviving brothers and a surviving mother. The deceased was not married and did not have children. What I learned was that the deceased was killed by a driver that was under the influence of drugs and had a criminal record. Nevertheless, the deceased owned two houses and a 1/4 of a liqueur store. Even though his two surviving brothers are in complete agreement and the surviving mother is going to assign her interest in the assets to the sons, this agreeable matter could have been completely avoided had the deceased had a living trust. Luckily, the surviving brothers have enough assets to probate the matter, but have to wait about 2 months for an order and letters to be issued to have full access to the assets. Both surviving brothers have assets and families and are planning on having living trusts/estate plans prepared to protect their families. I share this story to encourage people to get their affairs in order, as it is not that expensive and can protect your family and give peace of mind. #wehelpyoulegal NOTE: There are services online, such as #legalzoom provide a similar service to ours, but we are able to provide that personal service that is especially important during this type of matter. https://www.facebook.com/wehelpyoulegal

Contempt – Family Law Court orders are slightly more powerful than the paper they are printed on.

Just like in any other area of […]

What is Probate? How to Probate? We are in San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, Santa Maria and Arroyo Grande

Posted on 06/08/13 No Comments

Receipt of probate is the first step in the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, resolving all claims and distributing the deceased person’s property under a will. A probate court (surrogate court) decides the legal validity of a testator’s will and grants its approval by granting probate to the executor. The probated will becomes a legal document that may be enforced by the executor in the law-courts if necessary. A probate also officially appoints the executor (or personal representative), generally named in the will, as having legal power to dispose of the testator’s assets in the manner specified in the will.

Living Trust/Estate Plan – San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, Arroyo Grande, Paso Robles

Posted on 06/08/13 No Comments

A living trust is a legal document created by you (the grantor) during your lifetime. Just like a will, a living trust spells out exactly what your desires are with regard to your assets, your dependents, and your heirs. The big difference is that a will becomes effective only after you die and your will has been entered into probate. A living trust bypasses the costly and time-consuming process of probate, enabling your successor trustee (who fills basically the same role as an executor of a will) to carry out your instructions as documented in your living trust at your death, and also if you’re unable to manage your financial, healthcare, and legal affairs due to incapacity.
