Q. Re:probate case when i file a Declaration can i also include what i want the court to do.Like exclude and release funds?
A: No, a petition and an order to withdraw funds from a blocked account are separate forms. Use Judicial Counsel Forms MC-357 and MC-358 to request withdrawal of funds from a blocked account.
Q. How do I get my hearing date for status report modified to include Petition for final distribution?
A: You would fill in the hearing date and then put in your filing that the judge said it was okay to set the same hearing date.
Q. Does a request for production of documents and a requests for admission have to be filed with the court clerk.
A: No, discovery requests do not need to be filed with the court clerk to be legal. In fact, discovery is not filed with the court. They are normally served on the other party by mail.
Q. Re: probate in Los Angeles- there's a hearing date(17days)set by judge to show status can I file motion using same date?
A: You would have to get permission from the judge to use the same date for a motion or petition. You normally would file your motion or petition and then the court would set a new hearing date.
Q. ....can I write on top MotionNotice & Motion on one paper? And how many requests can i ask court to do per motion?
A: There is a judicial counsel for to petition the court to withdraw funds from a blocked account: Judicial Counsel Form MC-357. You must also file an order to withdraw funds from a blocked account: Judicial Counsel Form MC-358. When you file this petition and order, you can only ask the court to withdraw funds from a blocked account, not any other motions.
Q. Los Angeles probate case, I hired lawyer because I want to Object/ file 850.Lawyer never filed 850 but said he did....
A: I'm sorry that you are going through this. You should have a sit-down discussion with your attorney to understand what has happened. If you don't get satisfactory answers, you can switch attorneys.
Q. we need a pro bono attorney, we have a brother and sister that manipulated a will where he takes just about everything
A: A will must be validly created, with the testator of sound mind, and not under the undue influence of anyone else. Contact an attorney to review your situation and read the will.
Q. What happens if you are a benificiary of a life insurance policy but have no certified death certificate to submit?
A: Only certain persons can get a copy of a death certificate. You can hire an attorney to get a copy for you.
Q. What to file Los Angeles probate court to ask judge to exclude property/money from sale of property & show proof Docs.
A: I'm sorry, but I'm unclear of what you are asking about. If you mean that there is a sale of real estate, and you receive notice of proposed action for the sale of the real estate, you can object to the sale and file your objection with the court and notify the personal representative. I don't know what you mean by "proof docs."
