If you’ve been following along, you know that the state has a plan for you if you become injured, disabled, or die. The plan is costly, cumbersome for your family, too slow in an emergency and usually not what you would choose for yourself and your family if you could. Whew!
California will have you go through probate. The cost of probate vs doing a revocable trust is crazy. The time it takes for your family to go through the process is crazy (6-18 months on average). The stress it adds is crazy! And a judge makes decisions for your family. In many cases it isn't what you want. But you can avoid that process with simple planning.
If you have someone (even if they are not in California) that you trust to carry out important plans in the event of an emergency, and want to avoid lengthy and expensive court costs for an outcome that does not fulfill your wishes we can help.
