Your Guide To California Probate

William Sweeney

There's a saying among attorneys: If you're in probate, you didn't plan properly. Even if the decedent did leave a last will and testament, complications can still arise that may prolong the probate process.

At Sweeney Probate Law, I look to help families across California alleviate the stress of going through probate by passing along the knowledge and insight I've accumulated throughout my legal career. Whether attempting to manage creditor claims against the decedent's property or assisting the personal representative in understanding and undertaking his or her responsibilities, I will be there to answer questions and provide advice.

Your Guide Through California Probate And Out-Of-State Issues

Few people have ever probated a will or understand the responsibilities that come with being named an executor or administrator. That is why it is important to work with a lawyer who understands the ins and outs of California probate.

When you work me, I will listen as you share your concerns and questions, offer advice suited to your needs, and act as your guide as you address the following issues:

  • Understanding the responsibilities of the executor or administrator
  • Resolving debt issues
  • Locating a missing will
  • Understanding the probate process when there is no will
  • Understanding how long the probate process may take
  • Out-of-state issues during probate
  • Ancillary probate
  • The responsibilities of an out-of-state executor or administrator
  • Probating a foreign will

Regardless of whether you are the executor or administrator, or a beneficiary concerned with how the decedent's estate is being managed, I will work with you directly from start to finish ensuring your interests have a voice.
