Corona Estate Planning Lawyer
Clayson, Bainer & Saunders, PLC- Quality Legal Services Since 1910
When it comes to a person's assets and property, there are two ways in which they can be handled after their death. The first of these usually results from the lack of a will or trust of any kind and is known as probate. When a person dies before drafting a will or designating a
trust administrator, the court assigns its own administrator to determine "who gets what." This can be a long, expensive, and stressful procedure as family members and other legal beneficiaries dispute the distribution of the deceased individual's property.
The second option is estate planning. This is accomplished before an individual passes away by drafting and finalizing a will and appointing a trust administrator to handle the distribution of their property after their death. By having all of these things legally finalized ahead of time with the assistance of a Corona attorney, the property distribution process usually goes much smoother since the administrator knows exactly what the person wanted, and everything is laid out in detail in the will.
Why Hire an Estate Planning Attorney?
It is possible for a person to draft their will on their own, without legal counsel or assistance. This is not the wisest decision, however, because a will must be precisely written to ensure that there is no margin for ambiguity. An estate planning lawyer will have a detailed understanding of wills and trusts and could assist you in writing yours in such a way that no one could dispute what property goes to which individual, company or organization.
