When a marriage ends and the divorce process begins, it can lead to several complicated issues that must be resolved before the marriage can be legally dissolved. One such issue involves estate planning, specifically wills and trusts and how they are to be handled. Anyone who faces this situation needs to seek the help of San Diego wills and trusts attorneys as soon as possible, as failing to properly account for these issues can lead to severe tax and other financial consequences down the road.
Below are the two main areas of California family law that are handled by the San Diego wills and trusts lawyers at the Men’s Legal Center:
Wills are basically instruments that designate the apportionment of certain assets to beneficiaries. When a divorce arises, it could lead to complications in terms of the marital estate and which party should inherit certain assets. As a result, wills either need to be changed or if they cannot be changed the situation needs to be handled between the parties.
Trusts are instruments that can serve many more functions than to simply provide for an inheritance to certain beneficiaries. There are innumerable different types of trusts, and dissolving or adjusting them can be a difficult, complicated and time-consuming process if such steps are not handled by experienced professionals.
