Updates to the 24th Edition of How to Probate an Estate in California

Here are a few changes to the 24th edition of How to Probate an Estate in California

  1. Page 55, wrong code number. On page 55, under the header Formula 3, the text should read "Probate Code Section 247" (not 277).
  2. Death of Spouse or Domestic Partner Affidavit, an extra word. In the Death of Spouse or Domestic Partner Affidavit, in the forth paragraph from the bottom, there is an "or" where there should not be one.
    • This sentence: That the property has not been disposed of in trust or under the decedent's will.
    • Should read: That the property has not been disposed of in trust under the decedent's will.
This affects the sample document on page 322, the blank document in Appendix C, as well as the downloadable version of the form.

We hope that -- despite these errors -- you are finding this book useful.

Sincerely,

Nolo Editorial
