Corona Del Mar Probate Lawyer
Do you need legal advice for probate litigation? Give us a call!
Probate litigation most often arises because of a discrepancy in a person's
final will. During the court proceedings, assets, taxes, and other debts
are determined and then issued accordingly to those listed as the inheritors.
There may come a point, however, when the will needs to be contested for
any number of reasons, such as a difference of opinion on the division
of properties. On the other hand, perhaps the will was undertaken fraudulently
or forged, or the signer of the will was manipulated or was not of sound mind.
Making a will is a very serious endeavor, and it is important that the
entire process is handled from beginning to end by a capable law firm, like
Peter Rasla & Associates, P.L.C.
Who benefits from a will?
Making a will is important for those who might have a large estate and
assets and want to transfer those to family members after passing away.
It can give the signer peace of mind knowing that the assets will be appropriately
handled. Otherwise, without a will, the assets may be divided up according
to California's laws of intestate succession, typically transferred
to the spouse or closest surviving relative. This may or may not be ideal,
depending on the deceased's circumstances, so the benefit of making
a will outweighs not having one.
In the event that the will needs to be contested, however, probate litigation
can help ease some of the tension that may be felt between other heirs.
Some of these reasons include:
- To find a favorable solution to suit all inheritors
- To keep the family's finances safe
- To resolve familial arguments
- To clear up any tax liabilities
Whatever the reasons may be to contest a will, it can be exhaustive trying
to comprehend many of the laws surrounding probate. The wisest decision
you can make is to contact a Corona Del Mar probate attorney to provide
you with the valuable legal guidance you need.
