What is a probate referee?

Several responsibilities come with being named the personal representative or the executor of an estate on Oceanside, many of which you are likely not familiar with. One of these may be to appraise the value of all of the estate’s non-monetary assets. Fortunately, the probate court has resources in place to help with this process. All estates that go through probate in California must be valued by a probate referee.

What should I do if I get a Summons and Complaint?

When it comes to legal battles in child support cases in California, following the rules as precisely as possible is necessary to avoid conflict and negative consequences. Sometimes, part of the difficulty in adhering to court standards is knowing exactly what those are. If you have received a Summons and Complaint, there are several things you should do in order to ensure you fully comply and complete any requirements.

Taking a vacation from your custody arrangement

No matter what your feelings were for your former spouse, you were probably happy to see the divorce process end, even if you weren't happy to see the marriage end. Whether your divorce was contentious or amicable, listing, weighing and dividing your belongings was no doubt tedious and upsetting. Perhaps no part of the divorce was more emotional than deciding the custody arrangements.

Estate planning for second marriages

If you have been divorced or widowed before in California and have met a new partner that you plan to get married to, you should pay special attention to your estate plan. Remarried couples may have very unique needs and situations to address when they make their long-term estate plans, especially if either or both partners has children from prior marriages or relationships.

Social Security and Same-Sex Divorce

Couples across California may realize divorced spouses can be eligible for claims on an ex-spouse's Social Security benefits, but for same-sex divorces, there are a few important things to note. As Investment News notes, June 26, 2015 is the day the federal governement began to recognize all same-sex marriages after the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have the constitutional right to marry and to have that marriage recognized by all other states in the country. This has also provided same-sex couples with the framework to legally divorce.
