California estate asset values are in the eye of the beholder

A Los Angeles forensic accountant can be hired to place a fair market price on the estate assets you have, but only you and your loved ones know the worth of sentimental objects. Some of the worst squabbles in probate occur over property that has little or no value outside of a family.

Beneficiary reviews prevent California estate surprises

Drafting an estate plan can be as much about what you do want as it is about what you don't want. Maybe it has taken you several years to get to the point of meeting with an estate administration and planning adviser. Many Los Angeles residents want the distribution of assets issues finalized so they can get back to living instead of talking about dying.

Who pays a California decedent's bills?

Dying debt free in Los Angeles may be a goal, but it's often not a reality. In many states, leftover debt following a person's death is an estate's problem, not a direct concern for heirs. In California, community property laws sometimes force surviving spouses to pay a deceased spouse's bills.

Tupac case: Lesson for California intellectual property planning

California legal issues when decedents die intestate

Beneficiaries do not have to be named in a will to receive assets from an estate. A life insurance policy is an example. The proceeds from the policy go to the assigned beneficiary, whether or not that person is also named in a Los Angeles will, trust or other estate planning document.

California estate myth: Only wealthy people have trusts

You don't have to be a television, movie or music legend in Los Angeles to want control over inheritances you leave for heirs. If you think your estate plan is fine without a trust, you might be right. Then again, you might be missing something.

$300 million dispute over California heiress's estate

The California estate of Hugette Clark remains unresolved two years after the 104-year-old woman's death. Multiple parties, including relatives of the last descendent of a $300 million copper mining fortune never knew, are disputing two wills Clark left behind.

Heavy D's estate in Los Angeles probate years after death

Family power struggles at the time of a loved one's death are not so common that they disrupt the settlement of every estate, but conflicts happen. Legal issues among Los Angeles heirs and beneficiaries often occur when no estate plan exists or a critical legal document is indistinct.
