Why You May Want to Avoid San Diego Probate
The top three reasons you may want to avoid San Diego probate are that it may be:
- Expensive – The expenses incurred are not only for payment of service for the personal representative and attorney; there is also the cost associated with the San Diego probate court.
- Contentious – The San Diego probate process can become a difficult ordeal for the family and the San Diego personal representative because of disagreements over assets, debts, etc.
- Time consuming – A San Diego California probate can take 7 months to several years to complete.
Whether you die with or without a will in San Diego, your probate estate will be subject to all this. Ultimately, it may result in your wishes not being honored.
