California residents need to feature specifics in their wills

Many Americans, including here in California, do not have a will or a trust. This is typically because they simply have not found the time to make one. Wills and trusts are a crucial part of estate planning. Without one in place before you die, surviving family members may have to confront some thorny problems in order to arrange for the lawful distribution of your estate.

Facebook makes digital estate planning easier in California

There are many different things which must be considered when dealing with planning an estate. Due to the many things that must be included, many people in California often forget to consider digital assets when estate planning. Facebook has recently attempted to help address this problem by making key changes to the social media site's account policies.

Wills do more than help families avoid probate

Research suggests that many Americans have taken the steps necessary to ensure that their estate planning needs are adequately met. In fact, one study asserts that as many as 71percent of individuals have not addressed the creation of wills or trusts. Many in California and elsewhere hold false assumptions concerning how their assets would be handled upon their death, and the result of such misbeliefs could be a long and difficult probate process for those who are left behind.

Robin Williams's family heads to court over trust

Just a few months ago, the world learned the shocking news that Robin Williams passed away, leaving behind three adult children and his wife of almost three years. Many people in California are likely still in shock over the news of his death. However, less than five months after his death, his wife, Susan Schneider Williams, initiated proceedings asking the court to provide clarification on what appears to be a well-planned trust.
