A: California Probate Code §§ 8200 (a) and (b) provide that it is the duty of the custodian of the Will, to lodge the Will with the superior court (having jurisdiction) within 30 days after the custodian had knowledge of the testator's death. Additionally, a custodian is liable to anyone injured by the failure to timely lodge the Will with the court. This includes pour-over Wills which typically are included with a Trust. Check the records at the courthouse in the county where the decedent passed away or where they owned property.
