Santa Clarita Probate Attorney

Compassionate Legal Assistance in a Comfortable Office Environment

Losing a loved one is never easy and dealing with the financial and legal aftermath of the death of a loved one can be additional stress that your family does not need when they are already grieving. At O’Hare Law Office, our mission is to stand with you throughout the probate process, offering our honest advice and compassionate legal care. The relationships we are able to build with our clients is important to us and we work hard to get to know you and your situation to tailor our legal solutions to your family’s needs.

The Probate Process

In California, probate is triggered when a deceased individual dies intestate, or without an estate plan. This means without a trust but with a will, especially if the decedent owns real property, or without a will or any other estate planning documents. Probate can also take place when the heirs of an estate disagree or contest the decedent’s estate documents. The court will then oversee and handle the matter by using California’s laws of succession.

At O’Hare Law Office, we offer guidance for successor trustees, executors, and beneficiaries going through the probate process. This includes helping our clients with the following:

  • Complex court hearings and paperwork
  • Will or trust contests
  • Allegations of mishandling the assets of the estate
  • Paying debts of the estate
  • Distribution of the assets and property of the estate

Assets or property that are owned jointly, or an estate that is governed by a living trust, generally do not have to go through probate, which is why it is important to consult with our Santa Clarita estate planning attorney about the values of an estate plan.
