Helping You Minimize The Impact Of Probate
If you leave your estate to your loved ones using a will, everything you own will pass through a court process called probate. Probate is expensive, time-consuming and open to the public.
At The Law Office of Jamay Lee, A Professional Corporation, we understand that creating an estate plan that fully reflects your wishes often involves addressing the impact of probate. We help a variety of clients in San Mateo and the surrounding area limit that impact and protect their legacy.
How Can The Probate Process Impact Your Estate?
The probate process can be time-consuming and costly, limiting the amount of assets that your loved ones will receive and adding stress to an already difficult time. Probate also makes the contents of your estate a matter of public record because your estate will pass through courts.
While your estate is in probate, your assets may be frozen for months, making it difficult for your family to pay for living expenses. If you are married and have children, you want to ensure that your surviving family has immediate access to cash to pay for living expenses while your estate is being settled.
With proper planning, your assets can pass on to your loved ones without undergoing probate, in a manner that is quick, inexpensive and private.
