Once you’ve entered your contact information in the forms above or below you, you’ll be getting a call from us within 24 hours. If you’d want to speak to someone earlier, call us at (657) 206-0121.

According to California law, as a personal representative, you must complete probate within one year from the date of appointment. However, if the personal representative files a federal estate tax on the property, you can have up to 18 months to complete probate.
If probate is still not completed by that time, the personal representative must file a status report to the court to explain what has happened, and how much time will be needed. If the personal representative has not reported to the court regarding probate, beneficiaries can then ask the court to order him/her to file an accounting or take other actions to close the probate.
Additionally, if there is a Will Contest (in which there is a claim with the court that all or part of the will is invalid) the process of probate can drag out and can take years to resolve.
The short answer is bureaucracy and the courts. It does take some time for a case to pass through the California court system and for it to be completed. Furthermore, assets aren’t actually distributed between the beneficiaries until the estate is closed, or when the court deems that the deceased person’s affairs are properly organized and handled.
If the individual who died did not have any property to transfer, then probate will not be necessary. However, the deceased person’s survivors may decide to open a probate if there are debts owed or if there is a set deadline needed to file claims for creditors.
If the individual who died did have property to transfer, then the probate process allows for the distribution of the estate’s property to the decedent’s heirs in a fair manner, or according to the Will of the deceased.
Yes, it can! However, the proceeds from the sale will be dispersed to cover probate costs and estate debts. Afterward, the probate court splits any remaining profits among the beneficiaries.
However, if you are the sole owner of the property as stated via the Will of the Deceased, you can sell the home immediately, and use the income generated to pay off the estate debts and probate costs, and you can pocket the rest of the money.
