What Is Probate Court?

Probate court is necessary to ensure that a will is valid and being followed properly, but it does not need to be a stressful process with the right support.

The probate process ensures that assets transfer to the designated beneficiaries and that the estate pays its creditors. If someone challenges the validity of a will, the probate court exists to settle this matter and distribute your property. Here’s how the probate process typically works in California: Probate commences when someone files a petition for probate, usually a relative or someone appointed to the role by the will. The court confirms the executor who will handle several tasks, such as opening bank accounts, sending notices to beneficiaries, filing court documents, and transferring assets. As probate court proceedings move forward, it may take months or years to complete. Every estate is different, and it can be costly if the case is complex. If the deceased’s will and estate are well-planned and clearly expressed in a written, legally binding document, probate court runs smoothly. You might even be able to help your loved ones avoid probate with a living or revocable trust.
