What is probate?
Generally speaking, “probate” is a legal process that takes place after someone dies. It is during probate where the court will determine that a deceased person’s will is valid. The decedent’s property will also be identified, inventoried and appraised during probate. The taxes and debts of the estate will also be determined during probate. Finally, any remaining property will be distributed according to the terms of the will…or if there is no valid will, according to California law.

How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
