After a person passes away, the legal process that closes out his/her estate is known as probate. A probate case typically develops when the deceased did not have a will or living trust in place, which clearly established their wishes for their estate upon their death. Probate law is complex and can be difficult for people to understand, especially while they are grieving the loss of a loved one. To save time and reduce stress, it is helpful to work with an experienced San Diego probate attorney from Mayfield Bustarde, LLP.
Probate cases often arise because of a legal dispute between family members of the deceased. They might fight over accounts, assets, property, and guardianship of children or pets. These issues can become very tense for all parties involved, and result in litigation in court.
