How to Avoid Statutory Probate Fees in California
Establish a Living Trust. A Living Trust allows your assets to pass from your estate to your beneficiaries without the need for a probate proceeding or court supervision. Not only does a living trust avoid probate and its associated fees, it also allows your estate to pass faster, with less expenses, and when properly designed and drafted by an experienced estate planning attorney, can also provide estate tax benefits and asset protection for your beneficiaries.
