Orange County residents rely on these professionals for guidance through the administration of the estate, to expedite probate, and to ensure that the assets are managed correctly.

More about Probate

The probate process is meant to wind down the legal and financial affairs of those who have passed away. An administrator, named by the court, leads this process. He or she is usually a family member, friend, or someone trusted by the decedent. The executor is responsible for disposing of the assets to the beneficiaries.

Probate is essential because it may be the only legal means for dealing with legal title to property, finances, or other material assets left over after a person is gone. However, the process can be complex and lengthy, which is why people often turn to help from a probate litigation attorney. [again, this is not really a litigation issue] Orange County beneficiaries and executors may both hire attorneys, though for different purposes.

Why Executors Hire Lawyers

A beneficiary may be unhappy with the decisions of the executor or charge that he she is doing something improper with the assets, such as spending money frivolously or distributing assets without a court order. The attorney can respond to these courtroom issues for the executor.

Why Beneficiaries Hire Lawyers
