Facilitating A More Painless Post-Death Process

Probate, trust, and estate administration, is the process that occurs after one has died of transferring the decedent's assets. Probate is the court process which must be used to transfer assets if someone dies with a will or without a will. While probate could potentially be avoided or at least made much easier with a well-prepared and fully funded estate plan, the process could take years to complete.

Located in Sacramento, LifePath Law works to make probate, trust and estate administration simpler for loved ones, to ease the burden as much as possible. Our post-death administration services include:
