Sacramento Probate Attorneys Put Their Expertise to Work for You

Thousands of ways Generations can help during your time of loss

The California Probate Code consists of thousands of separate sections governing every aspect of probate—each another reason to enlist a team of legal professionals to deal with this unwelcome onslaught of paperwork, filings, and court appearances.

Losing a loved one is often a traumatic occasion. Needing to dedicate hundreds of hours to settle your loved one’s estate adds insult to injury. And, if the estate is not in perfect order, expect to expand those hundreds of hours into thousands. Then add the stress of travel if you do not live in the same city or neighborhood. Clearly, hiring reliable counsel to handle the probate process is necessary.

Even a will is no defense against probate in California. The law says that if the estate held in the decedent's name is valued at $150,000 or more, is not in a trust, and does not have a beneficiary designation, then the estate must go through the entire probate process.  All assets in probate will be subject to state-mandated attorney and personal representation fees, as well as court costs.
