Get Peace of Mind by Working with Orange County Probate Attorney Gregory W. Cabo
The California probate law exists to formally and equitably wind up estates via a legal process overseen by a judge. In order to ensure that all interested parties, beneficiaries and heirs have formal notice and an opportunity to assert their claims, California probate matters are carried out publicly. In addition, notice of the probate is published in local Orange County newspapers. These notifications and notices inform the public of the decedent’s name, the name of the executor and probate hearing date.
The probate hearing date is critical, and if you are just learning of your relative’s probate matter through one of the aforementioned notices, it’s crucial that you get in touch with an Orange County probate attorney as soon as possible. Will contests and objections to the petition to appoint an executor usually must be filed on or before the probate hearing date. When asserting your claim or filing your objection with the Superior Court of Orange County, it’s imperative that you follow the proper probate court procedure and local rules.
