The courts prefer for parents try and make their own parenting plan and visitation schedule together. If both parents agree with one another regarding visitation rights, the parents can submit the schedule to the court for official court approval.

Probate

How Does the Probate Process Work?

For many, the probate process can be an intimidating and overwhelming legal process. At times when the passing of a loved one takes an emotional toll, these legal proceedings can become even more difficult. I am prepared to walk you through each phase of the probate process, working closely with you and keeping you informed at all times. While cases are always unique and estates may have different concerns and circumstances, the probate process will generally work as follows: 

  • File a Petition – An executor named in a will, or a representative appointed by the court if there is no will, must begin the probate process by submitting a petition to the local probate court to validate the will.  
  • Inventory of Assets – Estate representatives will be responsible for finding, securing, and managing a decedent's assets during probate. An attorney can assist with this task, which will involve an inventory of all assets, including bank accounts, real estate, personal property, and other possessions. Assets may also include retirement funds or life insurance.  
  • Paying Debts – Representatives have the duty of addressing and paying any debts a decedent may owe creditors. Depending on the circumstances, some assets may need to be sold to pay debts.  
  • Distribution of Assets – After all debts and creditors have been addressed, any remaining assets will be distributed according to a will, or through California intestate succession laws if there is no will.
