Understanding the California probate process

If you are currently grieving the loss of a loved one, you will quickly realize that as well as dealing with the emotional aspects of your loss, you will need to deal with the logistical proceedings that are necessary after a person's death. If you have been appointed as the personal representative of the estate, you have the responsibility to oversee the probate process.

The required elements of a will

Each state in the country has its own set of estate planning rules for what constitutes a valid and legal will. For this reason, readers of this post are encouraged to fully understand the estate planning laws in their state. However, this post will offer an overview of what California residents must do in order to have valid wills.

Ways that an estate plan can be challenged

A number of legal documents can make up an estate plan. However, the mere existence of these documents is not enough to constitute a satisfactory and efficient plan. In fact, any errors in the creation of these documents can render an entire estate plan invalid, thereby negating one's wishes for his or her estate. This is why many individuals turn to legal professionals for assistance. However, when issues with an estate plan arise, individuals need to understand the law and how it applies to their set of circumstances.
