I just filed a petition for probate and the hearing is not until Dec 13th 2012. I need to get something to the reverse mortgage company as soon as possible before they foreclose. I was told I could ask for a special letter of administration detailing the concern I am having. Should I wait for the hearing or submit a document now asking for a special letter? This is a CA case. My parents had no will or trust and I am doing this pro per to the best of my ability.
