California Wills: Myths

About a week ago, USA Today ran an article entitled “5 Myths About Wills, and What You Should Do”. These myths apply in California and ought to result in contacting a knowledgeable estate planning attorney about what can be done.

Those myths are:

After I create my will or living trust, I’m all set.

If I die without a will, everything will go to my spouse.

I could be held responsible for a deceased parent’s debts.

Estate planning is for rich people.

If I have a will, my estate won’t go through probate.

Call attorney Mitchell A. Port with questions about California probate, estate planning, living trusts and any number of other tax planning tools to help you minimize your tax exposure.
