Living Trusts for California Residents
A variety of estate planning subjects, including living trusts, wills, probate, health care directives, and powers of attorney are explained on this website. In addition, these pages also explain federal estate taxes, holographic wills, intestate succession, FDIC insurance, and even pet trusts. For those who need even more information, we have pages about disclaimers, spousal property petitions, and why you don't need a public reading of a will. And, of course, for those who can't get around to planning their estates, there's the procrastination page.
Flat fees are available for estate plans to give you the assurance of a comprehensive estate plan with the constant worry about being charged more for asking questions about your documents.
