What are the differences between divorce, annulment, and legal separation?

Divorce differs from legal separation in that divorce completely dissolves the marriage. Divorce and legal separation have similar consequences for the division of property, but a legal separation does not end the marriage. After divorce, the parties can remarry; after legal separation, the parties cannot remarry because they are still married to each other. An annulment is the court finding that the marriage was not valid in the first place--the court more or less "erases" the marriage, and the parties go back to the way they were prior to the marriage. In California, annulments are fairly uncommon.

What is probate? Why isn't a will enough?

Probate is the court process of transferring property from someone who died (the "decedent") to the people or person(s) who are entitled to the property at the decedent's death. A will tells the court (and the world) who the decedent wants to give their property to after their death. However, a will is only instructions--to legally transfer title and take care of the decedent's property, a will still requires probate through the courts.

Can you contest a trust fund?
Yes. Generally, if you feel a trustee is acting improperly or the trust fund is not being administered correctly, we may be able to help you. Specifically, we would need to consider the facts of your case during a consultation.
