Your Needs First

Drafting a Will in Los Angeles County

Our Tarzana Estate Planning Attorneys Can Help

A Will (formally called a Last Will and Testament) is a legal instrument that disposes your assets after your death. Without a properly drafted Will, state laws (known as intestacy laws) will determine how your assets are distributed and to whom they are distributed. In addition, a Will names a guardian to care for your minor children and a caretaker for your pets.

Certain assets are not distributed by a Will. Assets owned by more than one person in “joint tenancy” or as “joint tenants” or assets with valid beneficiary designations, such as life insurance policies or retirement benefits, will pass outside of a Will to the joint owner or designated beneficiary, whatever the case.

However, estates with values over $184,500 of probatable assets – with or without a Will – will go through the court process of probate.

At Goldfarb & Luu, our compassionate Tarzana estate planning lawyers will assist you in making sure your final wishes are known and honored. Whether you live in Los Angeles County, Ventura County or Orange County, we can provide you with sound legal guidance as you plan for the future.

Two Types of Wills

  • A formal Will is typewritten and signed by you in front of two witnesses.
  • A Holographic Will is written in your own handwriting and does not need two witnesses.

Both of these types of Wills are valid in court.
