Mediation may be preferable to estate litigation in California

It is always difficult to lose a loved one. However, emotions become especially heightened when the deceased's heirs disagree with regards to the distribution or handling of the deceased's estate. Those in San Mateo who are facing the prospect of estate litigation may want to first consider trying mediation.

There are options when it comes to visitation in California

Even the best of parents in California may find that, after years of being married, they are best off ending their union. When parents in California divorce, it is only natural that they both want to spend as much time with their child as possible. However, sometimes it is in a child's best interests to live primarily with one parent. When a child spends less than 50 percent of their time with a parent, that parent will have visitation rights. In general, there are three types of visitation that could be ordered.

Why challenge a will?

When someone important to you passes away or faces incapacitation, that person's will may involve you in some way, or might conspicuously leave you unmentioned. If so, it is always wise to review the document carefully to fully understand your role in the process of distributing the decedent's estate.
