Probate

Los Angeles Trust and WIll AttorneyProbate is an official California court proceeding where assets of a decedent are legally distributed to heirs of the estate. When an individual passes with proper Estate Planning, assets held in the name of the decedent (such as a house, car, and bank accounts) usually cannot automatically pass to a surviving spouse or to the decedent’s children. In order to pass title and assets to rightful family members, a probate must be opened to legally and succinctly pass assets to the rightful beneficiaries.
