Probate

If you’ve recently lost a family member and are facing probate, we are sorry for your loss. Death is difficult emotionally and complex legally; your loved one’s estate may have to go through probate, a California court process, before their assets can be transferred to heirs. It can be tough to navigate probate on your own, but the knowledgeable probate attorneys at Equal Justice Law Group can simplify the process and give you peace of mind. Call today to book a free consultation.

The goal of probate is to ensure that the right people receive the inheritance left behind, either according to the contents of the deceased person’s will, or in accordance with California’s intestate laws.

Even if your loved one had a will in place, their estate may have to undergo probate, unless they…

Owned all of their assets jointly
Had the proper transfer-on-death/payable-on-death beneficiary designations
Or owned less than $184,500 worth of “countable” assets

If any of those three conditions apply, the estate may qualify to skip probate or undergo a simplified version, but otherwise, the full process likely needs to occur.

Probate is notoriously time-consuming and expensive. Most people have never heard of probate before they are tasked with completing it as their loved one’s estate executor/administrator, and it can be completely overwhelming to try to understand what’s required of them. Making mistakes can prolong the process or result in additional court fees or even lawsuits; enlisting the help of the knowledgeable probate attorneys at Equal Justice Law Group can save you time and money in the process. We can explain whether or not there are probate alternatives available to you, and if not, what you need to do to ensure a smooth administration.
