Community Property

Community property agreements change the character of both marital partner's assets to community property.  For estate planning purposes, this allows all the property of the first spouse to die to be transferred to the surviving spouse without probate.  

There are some good reasons for doing this, for example, to relieve the surviving spouse of the responsibility of administering an estate during a very stressful and emotional time.  There are, however, many potential downsides to creating a community property agreement, which affects the character of property, the claims of creditors, the inheritance of children, etc.  Steven Wee Law Office can help you determine whether a community property agreement furthers your estate planning goals.
