Retain a skilled probate lawyer to help through the process
When someone passes away, resolving their financial and property matters will take place in probate court. In the state of California, this always occurs in superior court. Here, an executor is named, any wills or trusts are examined, motions by any contesting parties are filed, and any remaining assets are distributed as closely to the deceased final wishes as possible.
