Stamping Legal Document in Glendale, CA

A Knowledgeable Will Attorney

Without a will, the courts will distribute your assets after your death according to the law of intestacy. That usually means that your spouse and/or children receive all your property. Making a will is especially important for couples who are not legally married or who wish to pass certain possessions on to specific people. A will attorney helps you ensure that the document is prepared in accordance with the law.

A will lets you stipulate exactly who will receive your possessions. By making a comprehensive will, you will save your loved ones hassle and confusion after your death. You'll be able to ensure that items with special meaning or sentimental value will go to the people who will appreciate them and that your assets are divided fairly. You can also use your will to leave a legacy to a charity or other organization.

Contested Wills

In most cases, a will makes the wishes of the decedent clear, but a will may be contested for a number of reasons. If you believe the will is not valid, you are entitled to file an objection with the court during the probate period. Contested wills can result in serious complications, but a skilled attorney will help you receive the assets you deserve. There are a number of grounds for contesting a will in California. If you believe the will was written under duress or someone had undue influence on the deceased person when the will was written, you may be able to contest its validity. We help clients file all the necessary paperwork to contest a will and make your case in court.

Living Wills Explained

Making medical decisions on behalf of a family member is always difficult. That's why it's important to make your wishes clear. A living will is a document that indicates what medical care you wish to receive in the event that you are unable to make decisions for yourself. We help clients create living wills and advance health care directives so that their loved ones can honor their wishes in the event of incapacitating illness or injury.
