Create, Handle And Protect Your Small Estate
The asset limit that causes an estate to enter probate is $184,500 and could increase slightly over the next few years. People with estates worth less than this amount may not feel they need to protect it. This can be a costly mistake. However, it doesn’t have to be – that’s where an attorney can help.
At The Sterling Law Group, A P.C., we’ve assisted countless people in California with small estates solidify their wishes after they pass. Our years of experience managing all aspects of estate planning and administration give us a unique perspective on navigating and tackling issues that arise throughout the process.
What Can I Do To Manage My Small Estate?
You have many options for dealing with your small estate while you’re still alive. If your real property is less than $184,500, you can still place those assets in a trust. That way, your heirs and beneficiaries have less work to do when handling your estate. In other cases, you may only need a will.
However, if your loved one passes without anything in place, we can still help navigate the transfer of their small estate to you and any other beneficiaries. Or if you have real property, we can assist with Probate Code § 13200 Affidavit Re Real Property of Small Value.
