Get help finding the Right Wills and Estate Planning Lawyer for your case
The Heggstad Petition is the result of the California case in which it was allowed to include assets in a trust after a person dies. This occurs when the decedent did not transfer all of his assets to his trust prior to dying.
Contrary to what most people believe, a Heggstad Petition alone does not transfer assets into the trust. In fact, other transfer documents such as quitclaim deeds are necessary to put the transfer into effect. It is also important for trust holders not to rely on anyone else to follow up on the transfer of the assets.
Heggstad petition lawyers can work on your behalf to prepare all legal documents, file all documents and make sure the end results are in your favor. Probate lawyers can make sure all necessary steps are taken and keep you posted on the developments in your Heggstad petition.
