Our work in helping San Diego families through the Trust Administration or Probate Process helps us continuously sharpen our Estate Plan documents as we incorporate unique lessons learned from each administrative process into our Estate Planning documents. That real world, practical experience is invaluable and makes for a tried-and-true Estate Plan that you can count on to effectively carry out your wishes.

Who Needs an Estate Plan?

In San Diego and throughout California, there is often a misconception that not everyone needs an Estate Plan. The truth is, every adult in San Diego needs to have an Estate Plan in place. While everyone needs an Estate Plan, what’s in that plan will differ from person to person. If you don’t set one up yourself, the State has a ready-made plan for you, but to access this plan your family is forced to spend countless months/years and tens of thousands of dollars in Probate court.

Some San Diego families may be fine with a simple Will and Powers of Attorney, while others may need to incorporate a Living Trust, Revocable Trust, or Family Trust into their plan. These Trusts are often needed by San Diego families who meet any of the following criteria: they have minor children, own real property, own assets with a gross value of over $166,250, or they wish to place guidelines or structure around how someone will inherit their Estate. Other San Diego families will need to incorporate more advanced tax planning into their Estate Plan, cover Business interests, or plan for Asset Protection.

The best way to determine what needs to be in your Estate Plan is to find a San Diego Estate Planning Attorney that you Trust and enjoy working with. Only an Estate Planning Attorney can competently advise you on the best route for your unique situation, often in tandem with any other financial or tax professionals you already work with or need to be introduced to.
