Attorneys at Law Rodney W. Wickers assist clients by writing their Wills and Trusts to avoid probate or
save taxes; manage probate estate matters including petitions for probate, petitions for sale of real
property, will or trust contests and other general probate matters.
Probate is the judicial process that allows property to transfer from the decedent to his or her heirs.
The probate court is a special jurisdiction court and each district of the Los Angeles Superior Court or
Central Division of the Los Angeles Superior Court has jurisdiction to hear the Probate. The specific
location of the Court depends on the location of the Estate and or the Decedent.
The Probate process is generally anticipated to be approximately one year. The Court will set a Status
Conference shortly after that period of time and require the Administrator or Executor to report to the
Court on the status of the Estate and ask the administrator or Executor to provide the Court with an
estimate of completion. If the Probate is not closed within a year, the Court usually anticipates a more
complicated Estate involving more assets, out of state property or multiple assets with difficulty bringing
them into Court.
