Granite Bay Probate Lawyer

If you have recently lost a loved one, their estate may be going through the probate process. Beneficiaries like family members and friends generally want to make sure that their loved one’s wishes are properly carried out. However, during this stressful and emotional time, disputes about the administration or validity of a Will may arise.

What is Probate?

During the probate process, a court will determine if a decedent’s Will is legal and valid. If an individual dies without a will, the probate court will determine how the estate will be distributed according to the state’s intestate laws. Then, an executor will be appointed to administer the estate and distribute assets to beneficiaries designated in a valid Will or under intestate laws.

At times, this process may involve disputes between family members and loved ones of the decedent. If a Will or divestment is challenged, it is crucial for beneficiaries to seek the counsel of an experienced probate lawyer to make sure their rights are protected.

What happens if someone dies without a will?

In California, the estate passes first to closest relatives, starting with a spouse and children. The list continues and the estate passes to distant relatives and until finally, if there are no living relatives by blood or marriage, then the estate goes to the state. Without a will, or without a valid will, the state would decide how to distribute the estate, possibly even distributing some property to unintended heirs and disregard property such as jewelry or family heirlooms.
