How to Probate an Estate in California


Written by probate paralegal Julia Nissley, this indispensable bestseller unravels how to settle a simple California estate without an attorney. It provides all the tear-out forms and instructions one needs to: read and understand a will; determine who gets property if there is no will; transfer securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds); transfer property to a surviving spouse outside probate; collect life insurance and other death benefits; change title of real estate, securities, motor vehicles, and other possessions into the names of the new owners; and distribute property in living trusts — and more. Written in clear, jargon-free terms, this guide includes summary procedures that allow estates under $100,000 to be settled in a matter of weeks.
