In San Diego, many residents will pass away. When they do, their husbands, wives, sons, daughters, grandchildren and other relatives will receive their property either through the probate process or through trust administration or other legal procedures for distribution of assets post death of the trustor. In San Diego, there are two court houses which hear probate cases. One court house is in San Diego and the other court house is in Vista.
In a recent article in the Sacramento Bee, the issue of the importance of naming beneficiaries is discussed as part of the estate plan. The article discusses the distribution to contingent beneficiaries of a life insurance policy rather than the living trust as the beneficiaries.
