Legal Answers
Q. What to do when Dad dies with no will in California. Homes listed as separate property.
A: Yes, you most likely need to hire an attorney and get a petition filed in probate court. You should start by either checking title on the properties or having the attorney check title to ensure the properties are held in his name alone as his separate property.
Q. I am trying to find a Probate attorney. Unfortunately my boyfriend left a holographic will that names me as executor.
A: Typically the amount of beneficiaries listed is not an issue. It depends on the size of the estate and if there is enough assets to fulfill the amount of potential gifts listed in the will as well as your ability to properly contact all the beneficiaries listed as they will all have to be notified by law.
Q. I sold my dad's house he left me and all the paperwork been done can I go to court early an ask the judge for the money
A: If the estate has cash, it is possible under the probate code to file an ex parte petition to do a preliminary distribution of up to 50% of the estate. But eventually you will have to do your accounting and petition for final distribution to be able to distribute everything.
