Orange County Estate Planning and Probate Attorney
Fiducia Legal provides its clients with quality estate planning, probate and trust services at affordable prices.
Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning
Most people put off estate planning because they feel that it is only for the rich, or that is might be too expensive for them. First of all, estate planning is not just for people who own big estates. Anyone who owns a home, real property, or just personal property, and wants to make sure these assets are left to family and loved ones will benefit from proper estate planning. Fiducia Legal strives to make estate planning services affordable, which is why most of our legal fees are based on flat rate pricing, from single documents to complete estate planning packages. We can provide you with attorney-prepared documents specifically tailored to your needs. A common estate plan typically includes a trust, pour-over will, financial power of attorney, advance health care directive, HIPAA release and authorization, trust transfer deed, and other estate planning documents. Once an estate plan has been implemented, we can also help you keep it up-to-date, including making any desired amendments as circumstances require.
Probate, Conservatorship and Guardianship
Besides focusing on estate planning, Fiducia Legal also has experience handling probate cases. When an estate plan is properly executed, there usually is no need for probate, a complex and often confusing court process required to settle debts, provide accounting, and make distributions to heirs and beneficiaries. However, many people never get around to doing their estate plan until something happens, and then it is too late. We can guide you through this lengthy probate process. Our office also handles conservatorship cases for those who are incapacitated, and guardianship cases for minors who inherit property or lose parents.
Small Estates Administration
Fiducia Legal can help you determine whether an estate can be settled using this simplified procedure that does not require court involvement. If the estate qualifies, we can draft all the necessary legal documents, and assist the heirs receive their distribution of the estate.
Although settling a living trust is usually a lot easier than settling an estate in probate, there are some formalities that are best handled by an attorney, such as proper reporting of the death of the settlor, transferring title of assets to successor trustee, and distribution of the trust. We are available to assist you in administering or settling the trust.
Fiducial Legal’s commitment to you is to listen, to help you determine your needs and goals, and to develop an estate plan tailored to meet your particular circumstance. You will be provided with a high level of personal service with an attention to all the details.
