About Probate Court

The purpose of the California probate courts is to settle matters of transferring a deceased person's estate to the beneficiaries as well as dealing with any financial debts or liabilities that are outstanding. This can simply be executing the will of the decedent as stated in a legal document or the more complex situation of arbitrating a contested transfer of property. Probate court may also handle creditor's claims to an estate, property or other assets. When the decedent does not leave a will, probate distributes the estate according to a set of codes. Additionally, probate courts hear cases concerning conservatorships, guardianships for minors, trust administration, litigation regarding the executors of an estate or trust and others.
