PETER RASLA & ASSOCIATES, P.L.C. Proudly Serving Aliso Viejo and Surrounding Areas

Aliso Viejo Probate Attorney

Preserving Your Rights for the Future

Probate is a highly complicated area of law. To put it simply, probate involves the court supervised passing of assets from a deceased person to those listed in the will as inheritors. Creditors and others to whom debts are owed may also be paid off as well. If your loved one chose not to have a will, the state of California may distribute the assets according to intestate succession, which may or may not be beneficial for the needs of you or the inheritors.

When you hire Peter Rasla & Associates, P.L.C., you have a team on your side who can help make sense of probate litigation, and help you through the process if you need to file probate.

How can I start the probate process?

An executor will be appointed to oversee your probate. This person ensures that that all of the decrees and guidelines that are contained in your loved one's will are carried out. Should you find yourself in disagreement with any of the outlines, then you may be able to seek legal counsel from an Aliso Viejo probate lawyer.

You must make an appearance in court to prove the following:

  • Your will is valid
  • To appoint a legal represented to act on behalf of the deceased
  • Identify the property that belongs to you and that must be appraised
  • Pay off any debts
  • Distribute the property as decreed in the will

Any debts or properties that were due to you can be recovered through the probate process. However, you should be aware that the entire ordeal may take months, or even up to a year. No matter how long it takes, depend on our firm to be with you every step of the way.

The process is complex and you may find yourself in over your head. You need to ensure that you gain every possible advantage if you are going to file for bankruptcy.
