Probate court is a mandatory procedure after someone dies to validate their will. However, probate court can be avoided by making a California revocable living trust.
Making your own California living trust and pour-over will has never been easier.
We offer specific attorney-drafted forms with step-by-step instructions to help you easily prepare your own California living trust and pour-over will.
The pour-over will is drafted to be used with a revocable living trust. This type of will “pours over” any assets that were left out of the living trust into the trust at the time of death. Doing so ensures that all assets are transferred into the trust and distributed according to the wishes of the Grantor.
The purpose of a California revocable living trust is to transfer property to a beneficiary(ies) and to avoid the normal hassles and expense of probating a will.
Making a California living trust has these advantages:
- Avoids the hassles and expense of probating a regular will
- Avoids the publicity of a will and probate court; your trust remains private
- Avoids the usual delays of a standard will
- Avoids the possibility of someone contesting your will
- Provides for uninterrupted income
- Possible tax savings, depending on your specific circumstances
- Allows you to transfer real estate into the trust
- Sets up a trust fund for your children a will
The Wall Street Journal says: “The advantages of revocable living trusts over wills are considerable. The process is quicker, cheaper and more private than settling a will, and it may save on estate taxes.”
Standard Will VS. Pour-Over Will
California attorneys and the California Bar Association recommend having a pour-over will with your living trust in contrast to a standard will and separate living trust. A pour-over will state that all assets not in your living trust will be transferred to the trustee of your living trust after your death. A standard will does not provide this important function.
