One thing all California residents can be certain of is that no one lives forever. While many people avoid the topic of their own mortality, they do think about their loved ones’ futures and how best to help them avoid stress once they are no longer with them. For some, careful estate planning is a chosen means to that end.
There are all types of health and asset-related decisions to make when considering drafting a thorough estate plan. Whether the process is fairly simple or complex and legally challenging depends on individual circumstances, as well as on one’s immediate and long-term goals. Either way, it often helps to seek the assistance of an experienced probate and estate administration attorney before compiling any official documents.
