Words From Our Clients!
We Help You Understand Your Probate Options
While the probate process can be costly, lengthy, and public, our probate attorneys are here to ensure that if you find yourself in probate, you do not have to go it alone. Our estate planning attorneys are also ready to assist in comprehensive estate planning, so you can potentially avoid probate entirely.
A loved one who passes without an estate plan will have their assets go into probate. Our probate attorneys are experienced in the probate process and can help you navigate every step.
A probate lawyer can help you avoid probate simply by creating an estate plan with a living trust. This allows you to avoid the protracted and expensive probate process, all while maintaining the confidentiality of your assets.
A living trust can keep you out of a court system, where everything filed is public record. In addition, you can also avoid a lengthy court process and the time, expenses, and hassle of administrative tasks like contacting creditors, performing an accounting of the assets, and paying debts and taxes.
Frequently Asked Questions
How Long Does the Estate Planning Process Take?
The typical process takes 4-6 weeks from start to finish: from your first appointment to the signing ceremony. At your first appointment, you will meet with your estate planning attorney in Orange County, ask questions, and decide whether to move forward with the peace of mind that your family is protected. We will discuss the exact fixed fee once we determine your needs and goals.
Your estate planning attorney in Orange County will then prepare all the legal documents that comprise your estate plan. About a month later, you will return for your signing ceremony to sign the prepared legal documents, and your estate plan will be fully in place.
While your estate plan may be complete, the signing ceremony just starts the lifetime relationship we maintain with our clients. We stay in touch, host special client-only webinars, and perform no-charge, three-year review meetings with you, so your plan always stays up-to-date.
