Understanding the Probate Process in California
When someone dies, the money and property which makes up their estate will be distributed to their heirs or named beneficiaries. The estate typically must go through the probate process. This involves several steps, including proving the existence of a valid will, identifying and inventorying the property, appraising the property, paying debts and taxes, and then distributing the remaining property.
How does probate work in California?
Step 1: Filing the Petition
The first step in initiating probate proceedings is filing a petition with the California Superior Court in the county where the deceased resided at the time of her death. This petition will trigger the court to schedule a hearing in approximately thirty (30) days.
Step 2: Notifying All Relevant Parties
After the petition is filed with the court, the notice of hearing will be published a minimum of three times in the local newspaper. It is also necessary to mail the notice to everyone named in the will (if there was one), along with all legal heirs of the deceased. A notice must also be provided to potential creditors.
Step 3: Proving the Will
If there is a will, it is necessary to “prove” the will unless it qualifies as a “self-proving” will. In some cases, the will contains specific language and/or an affidavit from everyone signing the will, which makes it unnecessary to prove the will's validity.
Step 4: Asset Collection
One of the personal representative's primary duties is to take possession of all of the deceased’s assets, but only those that are subject to probate. If an asset's title needs to be transferred into someone else’s name, the personal representative must take care of that. Some types of assets that may require a title change include:
Step 5: Payments to Creditors
Once the personal representative has provided notice of the death to creditors, those with debts payable by the estate must submit a claim. California requires creditors to submit their claims within four months of the appointment of the personal representative.
Step 6: Estate Tax Payments
The personal representative is also responsible for making sure all estate taxes are paid, including federal estate taxes and state taxes, which the state of California imposes.
Step 7: Closing the Estate
The final step is closing the estate. A petition, which summarizes the estate and reports all actions taken on behalf of the state, will be filed with the court and await approval.
