“I have been a Sacramento probate attorney for many years and agree that the probate code needs work. Considering that inheritance disputes can ruin family relationships when handled poorly, the Wiki Bill will hopefully make probate settlements easier and fairer. However, what can be considered as a “favorable” amendment to the state’s probate code is subjective.
I believe the real solution to streamlining our probate process is for the residents of Sacramento to work with Sacramento probate attorneys to create trust-based estate plans that can be administrated without the assistance of the probate court. Then the probate court could spend their resources helping families that have a dispute about how an estate is being handled rather than having their calendars clogged by probate matters that really did not need court oversight.”
