Legal Answers
74 Questions Answered
Q. I am in the will, my Grandfather passed and left me $ to split with the grandchildren. My mon insists there is no will?
A: Hello Sasha. You mention and will and a trust. Do you have a copy of any documents from your grandfather or know the attorney that he might have used? You will have a very hard time without copies of anything. You can also check title to any property he owned to see if it was recorded into a trust. If it does show ownership in a trust you can possibly insist on being provided with a copy of the trust
Q. My father died without a will and did not add beneficiaries to his bank account and 7 vacant lands that he owned.
A: The small estate affidavit involves ALL assets outside of trust or that would otherwise be subject to probate. So if there are other assets that would be subject to probate that make the total value above $166,250.00, then a small estate affidavit would not work
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.
