The Rutter Group’s California Practice Guide: Probate contains expert guidance through the probate process, from premortem planning to opening probate through to creditor claims, distributions, and discharge. It also includes a thorough treatment of non-probate alternatives, spousal set-asides, and estate and fiduciary income taxes, and extensively discusses will contests and other probate litigation.
The text integrates local rules; cites the latest cases available, plus statutes and rules of court; and features illustrations that are based on actual cases.
Each topic and procedure is developed step by step, showing you what, when, where, and how to proceed. You’ll also find proven strategies, tactics, and time-saving tips from experienced practitioners and sample practice-tested forms with comments and suggestions for their use.
