Probate is the process of determining the authenticity of a decedent’s will, identifying the executors, administering the decedent’s estate, and distributing the decedent’s property to beneficiaries after debts and taxes are paid.


If the decedent has left a Will, the named executor in the Will should start the probate process. The ‘executor’ is a personal representative of the estate which is named in the Will.

First, the Will must be determined valid, which is usually accomplished by having witnesses sign a sworn statement and submit to the court. However, if there isn’t a will or the named executor is unavailable, then a family member may request the court to be appointed as the “administrator” of the estate.

During the probate process, the executor is responsible for keeping all assets safe. For example, the executor must keep the house insured and maintained, and heirlooms must be safeguarded from theft or damage. In addition, the decedent’s creditors should be informed of the death. In California, creditors have four months to come forward with their claims, but many estates don’t receive any formal claims from creditors.

Estate Planning

Estate planning is the process of arranging for the management and disposal of a person’s estate during their life and after death. It involves making decisions about how assets will be managed, protected, and distributed to beneficiaries, as well as making provisions for potential incapacity.

Some of the important components of estate planning are as follows:

  • Will: A legal document that outlines how a person’s assets and properties will be distributed after their death.
  • Trust: A legal arrangement where a trustee holds assets on behalf of beneficiaries according to the terms specified in the trust document. Trusts can help avoid probate, provide privacy, and offer more control over asset distribution.
  • Power of Attorney: A legal document that authorizes someone to act on behalf of another person, typically in  legal and other matters.
  • Healthcare Directive or Living Will: A document that specifies an individual’s preferences for medical treatment and end-of-life care in the event they are unable to communicate their wishes.
  • Beneficiary Designations: Involves designating beneficiaries for retirement accounts, life insurance policies, and other financial assets. These designations typically override instructions in a will, so it’s important to keep them up to date.

Estate planning is important for everyone, regardless of age or wealth. It helps ensure that your wishes are carried out, minimizes further risks, taxes and legal fees, and provides peace of mind for you and your loved ones. Consulting with legal and financial professionals can help you create an estate plan tailored to your specific needs and goals.
