Probate Calculator

In probate law in California, a probate is the process used to prove a testator's last will and testament. A probate lawyer can be of significant help in making sure that you have all the information regarding how probates work in California. Usually this process culminates in either transferring probated property to beneficiaries or distributing personal representative probated property to heirs. A probate attorney is a must if someone dies without a will or testament in California. It is also required when the executor of the probated person's estate does not want to deal with probating an estate on their own or, alternatively, no one wanted them to be named the personal representative (executor) of their probated person's estate. In other cases, probate may be required in California because the probated person died without naming a personal representative or executor in their probate documents.
