    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. Why do I need an estate plan?

    Most people spend their life, earning money to give a comfortable life to their families. But life is uncertain and fragile.  There comes a time when you feel the need to protect the accumulated wealth for their future. Instead of allowing the government to intervene, create an estate plan for your loved ones. It allows you to distribute your wealth among your partner, children, and other dependents in the event of your demise. 

    2. Is estate planning for me?

    Yes, anyone can plan their estate. You do not have to be rich to qualify for estate planning in Los Angeles. Estate planning ensures your wealth ( or hard-earned money) goes in the right hands in case of your unexpected death. It provides to your family and other dependents when you’re no longer around to financially support. 

    3. How does estate planning help to reduce taxes?

    Estate planning laws allow individuals to pass on a proportion of their wealth, tax-free. Take advantage of those tax exemptions and reduce the tax burden on your legal heirs. Consult an estate planning lawyer in Los Angeles for all the information.

    4. How are, Will and Living Trust different?

    A Will is a legal document that records how your wealth should be distributed among your heirs in the event of your untimely death.  The legal process of asset distribution is categorized as probate.  Once your Will reaches that stage, it becomes a public document that’s controlled by an attorney. 

    A living trust, whereas, does not include the probate process. Herein, the property is owned by a Trust and the right to control and distribute assets goes to the person you name as your trustee in the Deed. 

    A Will comes into action in the event of your death but a Trust can be created while you’re alive.

    5. What if I die without planning my estate?

    In that case, the state and the federal government have the right to intervene and administer  “Intestate Probate”  to dispose of your estate.  Unlike an estate plan, this doesn’t take into consideration your last wish and emotional attachment with different family members.  Also, it may not serve your taxation benefits.  The people you care about the most might be subjected to an impersonal and unfair probate process that adds more pain to their financial worries.
