Last Will & Testament

A Last Will and Testament, more commonly known as just a “will,” details what will happen to your estate, who will manage any assets you leave to your minor children if you have any, who will care for those children, and names an executor (the person who will ensure the terms detailed in your will are followed.) Critically, a will must be filed in probate court. In most cases, this means that your family will be dealing with the court process for perhaps 18 months or longer. A portion of what you leave behind will also be lost to attorney fees, executor fees, filings fees, appraisal fees and any other costs associated with the probate court process. In California, if you don’t have a valid Last Will and Testament, the state will distribute your estate to your closest relatives, beginning with your spouse and children. If you don’t have a spouse or children, the court will reach out to other family members, such as your parents, grandparents, or siblings, before moving on to more distant relatives such as cousins. If no family member claims your estate, it goes to the State Department of Unclaimed Property. Weiner Law 12707 High Bluff Drive Ste. 125 San Diego, CA 92130 (858) 333-8844
