The need for an estate plan is extremely important as an effective estate plan provides for the distribution and management of your assets upon death, in addition to addressing future needs if you are no longer able to take care of yourself.
Not having an estate plan (either a Trust or a Will ) in place at the time of your death leads to Intestate Succession, which gives the state of California control over how your assets will be distributed upon your death. An estate plan also helps in avoiding the Probate process, by placing the distribution of the estate outside the court system which can save a family time and money. Further, an estate plan may provide tax benefits as certain devices can effectively minimize income, estate, gift, and generation-skipping transfer tax liability.
