What is a California Simple Will?

A California Simple will is a testamentary document that provides a set of instructions, to both your family and to the California probate court, on how you’d like your California estate to be handled.  Most California simple wills provide clear instructions on how the testator, (the person making a simple will), would like their property distributed after his or her death. In addition, a California simple will can also serve several other functions.  In addition to directing how assets are to be distributed, a California simple will can also do the following things:

  • Make your wishes know
  • Specify how assets are to be distributed
  • Name beneficiaries of the estate
  • Give instructions on how pets should be cared for
  • Provide how debts and taxes are to be paid
  • Name guardians for minor children
  • Name an executor or personal representative of their California estate plan
