The probate process

People in California who are considering creating an estate plan or who have recently lost a family member may have heard the word "probate" and wondered what it means. This is a process that involves validating the will, if there is one, and taking care of the person's estate, which could include distributing assets and paying taxes.

"Knives Out" delves into the world of estate planning

The movie "Knives Out"tells the story of a man who has changed his estate plan just before being found dead. However, it is important for California moviegoers to remember that the movie isn't an accurate portrayal of what happens when a person dies. For instance, there is generally no reading of the will by an executor or attorney after the testator dies. Of course, family members and other interested parties may be able to contest a will even if it's not read out loud.

Understanding the role of a conservator

If you have noticed that the physical or mental capacity of your parent or other elderly loved one may be slipping, you may have many concerns about his or her well-being. In fact, you may have already discovered serious mistakes your loved one has made, such as missing the payment of a critical bill or forgetting to take important medications.
