Estate Planning Attorney in Rancho Cucamonga

Develop An Effective Will or Trust For Your Estate Plan!

Planning your estate is a crucial and selfless decision. The Law Office of Luella G. Hairston is a family law firm based in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Our work encompasses every aspect of representing and supporting families, including estate planning.

Failure to plan your estate properly could jeopardize your family's rights and financial stability should a tragedy occur. When you want to establish a will or trust to protect your loved ones, our Rancho Cucamonga estate attorney is here to assist you in that endeavor.

Protecting Assets For California Families

A good estate plan should accomplish and include a number of key objectives. For example, your estate plan could:

  • Eliminate the probate process
  • Include a plan for what to do should you become incapacitated
  • Include a plan for the management of assets if the beneficiaries are young
  • Diminish estate taxes

Not everyone needs a living trust, but many people find it is a good option - particularly clients with large assets who want to avoid probate. This is partly due to the fact that, in the state of California, a deceased individual's estate will be probated if he or she owns more than $150,000 in assets at the time of his or her death - even if there is a will.

A living trust, on the other hand, eliminates the need for probate. Learn more about which plan suits your needs by talking to our California estate planning attorney at the Law Office of Luella G. Hairston.

  • Why should I hire a divorce lawyer?

    While it is not mandatory to hire a divorce lawyer, think about all of the areas of your life that your marriage dissolution will affect -your finances, possessions, assets, home, and children. An experienced family law attorney can protect the things you value and promote your rights. In addition, divorce can be an emotionally turbulent time. Letting an experienced professional take over the legal details could afford you enormous peace of mind and potentially save you thousands of dollars in the process of determining property division and domestic maintenance payments.

  • How long will my divorce take?

    The length of the divorce process really depends on the individual circumstances of your case. Although most marriage dissolutions typically take between six months and one year, yours could take longer if there are many disagreements over terms. Raise this question in your first consultation at the Law Office of Luella G. Hairston for a more specific answer.

  • What is mediation?

    Mediation is an alternative to litigation. If you and your spouse cannot agree on certain terms of your marriage but you wish to avoid going to family court, you have the option of pursuing an alternative dispute resolution method such as mediation. In a mediation process, you and your spouse discuss the terms of your marriage under the guidance of a neutral third party, your mediator. This is often a very useful tool for couples who wish to maintain control over the outcome of their marriage dissolution without submitting to the arbitrary decisions of a family law judge.

  • What is the difference between a contested divorce and an uncontested divorce?

    In an uncontested divorce, both spouses are able to come to an agreement regarding all of the terms of their divorce independent of the court. These terms may include property division, alimony payments, child support, and child custody agreements. In a contested divorce, the couple disagrees on one or more of these terms and is unable to reach a consensus. Thus, in order to legally dissolve the marriage, they must settle the issue in divorce court and submit to the final decision to a judge.
