Does a pending probate case, override a civil case involving real property?

Colton, CA |

Should a probate case be postponed, until the civil case is decided? When is a Spousal Property Petition and Order filed?

  1. You need to be presented by counsel in California probate court, as the process is complicated. There are no enough facts of your case presented. I strongly recommend that you advise the judge in each court e.g. probate and civil of the related case in the other courtroom. A probate case (if there was a will or no will) is required to be filed within 45 days of the death of the decedent.
