Will Preparation Services
You may not need a living trust, but you should have at least a will. Without a will, the State of California will decide who inherits your property and money. Even if you have a living trust, you should have a will (called a pourover will). Also, a will is the best document for naming a personal guardian for your minor children or pets. Wills do have one big drawback: property passing by a will in California will likely go through probate. It is important to talk to an experienced California estate planning attorney to determine if a will is the right estate planning document for you, as well as what property, if any, you want transferred by your will, and what property you want transferred by another estate planning device (like a living trust) to avoid probate.
The Law Offices of Eric A. Rudolph P.C. cannot only help you determine and prepare the best estate planning tools for your particular needs, but also evaluate, revise and update any existing estate planning documents.
