This is the first post in a series which will discuss property issues which arise during a San Bernardino, California probate. I felt it necessary to write on this topic as many people are not sure of their rights in such situations. The goal of my coming articles is to provide information that will help residents of our area to understand their options and to give information that will help them make an informed choice when choosing a probate attorney. If you have questions about your rights or the process, then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I will be addressing several topics over my coming articles. Issues I will analyze include:
- The types of disputes which arise in probate cases
- Conducting discovery in such matters
- Attending trial
- Filing an appeal if you are unhappy with the outcome of your case
These are important topics for one to understand. First, there are a variety of property issues which can arise in a probate. There may be disputes over whether assets should or should not be included in the estate, whether someone else actually owns the asset, etc. Second, the discovery process is crucial to proving one’s case and it is important to understand the tools through which information can be gained. Third, knowing what to expect from the trial process will help to ensure that it goes as smoothly as possible. Finally, many err by thinking that they have no option if their trial does not go well. The truth of the matter is that Judges sometimes make mistakes and that is why the system allows for appeals.
If you have questions about your situation, then it is important to contact a San Bernardino probate lawyer. You will only have a limited amount of time in which you may file disputes with the Court. If you miss this time frame, then you will be unable to go forward with a case. By contacting counsel sooner, rather than later, you help to ensure that your rights will be protected. Call my office today to schedule an initial consultation.
