One note, the presentation is entitled "and the Hispanic Community" but it really applies to all communities. By the way, Uno is One, Dos is Two, and Tres is Three, for those of you who are Spanish challenged.
I was surprised to learn that Probate cases make up about 1 out of 5 general civil cases, and that 55% of USAers (Americans) do not have a will or other estate plan! Higher for Hispanics!!
It forced me look at my personal matters with my family and I told my parents, brothers, and sisters about the importance of a will, living trust, and estate planning. I know nobody wants to hear about these things but suddenly decades go by and there you go...and the heirs fight over the inheritance.
I hope you like the probate presentation slides. If you have any real estate questions call me.
