Estate Planning in California - Small Estate Plans

Estate Planning

Small Estate Plans: If everything you own, including your property, bank accounts, retirement accounts, vehicles, cash, and everything else in your home or apartment are all-together worth under $ 150,000 (as of 2012, including real property valued up to $50,000), then you may be able to pass your property to your beneficiaries without going through Probate Court. The definition of a "Small Estate" that may pass without Probate can be found in California Probate Code Sections 13100-13115.

The good news so far is that your property can pass to your beneficiaries without Probate, however, there are many questions that remain: who are your beneficiaries, what will they inherit, who will be the guardians of your minor children, and what will happen with your remains. At the very least, a Last Will and Testament (or Will) can be prepared by our offices to make sure that all of these questions are answered, and that your last wishes are carried out.
