A California probate lawyer is an integral part of estate planning for residents of the Golden State. Probate is the legal process used to determine the value of estates and to properly distribute assets to heirs and beneficiaries. California probate code is complex; consisting of eleven divisions and hundreds of pages of legal jargon.
California probate lawyers specialize in helping individuals develop estate planning strategies. Some strategies can keep assets out of probate while others reduce or eliminate inheritance taxes. Probate attorneys can help individuals establish payable-on-death and transfer-on-death beneficiaries for investment and banking accounts, automobiles, motorcycles, boats, recreational vehicles, real estate holdings and businesses.
